Our Collective Vision
Together, we aspire to be the destinations of choice for people seeking quality healthcare and for those who provide, support and advance that care through leading-edge treatments and breakthrough discoveries. Our shared commitment to transform healthcare and to be among the nation's top academic medical centers will be accomplished through innovation and excellence.
Deliver Exceptional Care
Virtually every medical specialty is represented by the 1,603 on-staff physicians of Northwestern Memorial who also carry faculty appointments with the Feinberg School of Medicine. In 2010, Northwestern Memorial was re-designated with Magnet status (the gold standard for quality care) and was ranked locally as the No. 1 hospital in the Chicago metro area and among America's best hospitals in 13 medical specialties recognized nationally by U.S. News & World Report.
Northwestern Lake Forest is a not-for-profit community hospital that offers an unmatched continuum of healthcare services. Northwestern Lake Forest's 700 extraordinary physicians are trained in 90 specialties and a team of top-ranked nurses provides the communities it serves with the utmost personal and compassionate care.
