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.
