NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) and Swedish Covenant Health (SCH) today announced an agreement to form an exciting new partnership that will advance clinical care and patient outcomes in Chicago’s North Side communities. Under the proposed structure, SCH will join the NorthShore health system and continue to operate its full-service, acute care community hospital. The Executive Board of the Evangelical Covenant Church unanimously approved the partnership.
North Park University nursing clinical partnerships and educational exchange programs at all levels will remain in place and will thrive in this transition. In addition, our seminarians will continue to offer compassion, hope, and a healing presence to patients and families through the chaplaincy program.
