Vision: Everyone Has an Opportunity to Be Healthy

We believe that no matter who you are, where you come from, what your health condition is or whether you can pay for care, every Cook County resident deserves the same high quality, responsive and respectful healthcare.

Quality Health Care Should Not Be a Privilege

Founded in 2011, Cook County Health Foundation's focus is expanding access to and improving the quality of health care for people with the fewest resources. Our funding directly supports Cook County Health, our public health system, and its services from their Trauma Center, Burn Unit, and stroke and cardiac care to supporting primary health care for people living with chronic illness such as diabetes, asthma and arthritis. Our work enables us to help improve the health and well-being of individuals living in Cook County.

Investing in Care for People in Need

Throughout the year, the Foundation seeks support from individuals, corporations and community organizations to invest in Cook County Health services and initiatives focused on expanding access to care and improving quality. Gifts of all sizes make an impact on our work and on the lives of the people who count on Cook County Health for their care.

The Foundation's annual Gala Dinner and Awards Event has raised more than $1 million in the last five years.
