Our Purpose

Cook County Health Foundation is committed to expanding access and breaking down barriers to care and improving the quality of care for those with the fewest resources through support of our public health system, Cook County Health. Through education, fundraising and advocacy, the Foundation helps build the system's capacity to meet the needs of all of our County's residents.

Serving 300,000+ a Year

More than 300,000 people count on Cook County Health for care each year with services ranging from primary care and management of chronic illnesses to surgery and serious injury.

45% of Patients are Uninsured

On average, 45% of the system's patients are uninsured and have no options for care. Our public health system is always there for them regardless of their ability to pay.

1 Million Annual Patient Visits

Cook County Health's doctors, nurses and pharmacists carry out nearly 1 million patient visits each year with a focus on helping people not only recover but maintain their health.

Why We Help

Cook County Health provides cutting edge treatment and services while providing coverage, ensuring access and delivering hundreds of millions of dollars in uncompensated services to carry out its mission to care for all without regard for their ability to pay.
