Funds raised by the Cook County Health Foundation are supplemental to Cook County government funding. Foundation investments in Cook County Health & Hospitals System will not only support improved facilities and equipment but also will help advance clinical and educational program development, ensuring that CCHHS can continue to provide up-to-date interventions, teaching and research.
To date, the Foundation has had only nominal operating costs, allowing most of every dollar to go straight to supporting CCHHS. The Foundation goal is to remain ahead of the industry standard in ensuring that its funds provide direct support in line with its mission and goals.
Our voluntary members of the board work hard to reach out to individuals, companies and foundations to share the needs of CCHHS and seek their collaboration in enhancing the care provided to residents of Cook County.
On Wednesday, June 27, 2018 the Cook County Health Foundation will host its Fourth Annual Awards Gala, "Elevating Maternal and Children's Health" at the Chicago Hilton. We are pleased to give the Ruth Rothstein Award for Excellence to The Chicago Community Trust and Dr. Helene Gayle for their outstanding commitment to providing access to quality health care for women and children throughout Cook County.
