Our Mission is to provide a continuum of excellent health care services. Rooted in the Evangelical Covenant Church, the hospital is dedicated to serving the physical, spiritual and psychological needs of our culturally diverse communities. Swedish Covenant Hospital is committed to caring for patients as whole persons in their uniqueness through an atmosphere of professional excellence and human kindness. Our commitment includes a continuous re-examination of programs and priorities given our community’s changing needs, so that we may remain consistent with our basic philosophy.
You may have noticed that something feels different at the corner of Foster and California. Over the past few years, we’ve seen our community grow, and we’ve worked hard to evolve right alongside you. We’ve invested in new technologies, such as breast tomosynthesis (3-D mammography) and advanced heart imaging technology, to ensure you have access to critical services and treatments that result in the best possible health outcomes. We’ve grown our medical staff and created affiliations with other health care organizations in the city, like our cancer care affiliation with Rush University Medical Center.
We’re still one of the few independent, nonprofit teaching hospitals in the area, and we still provide you with medical services that range from treatment and care for new families to physical therapy. And yes, we remain firmly committed to the health and vibrancy of our community: With fifty percent of our more than 2,500 employees living within five miles of the hospital, we’re a part of you as much as you’re a part of us.
Our commitment to providing a safe, quality hospital experience has consistently been recognized. Most recently, we were awarded a Leadership in Safety Award from CNA Healthcare. This recognition firmly supports our commitment to our vision statement:
As the leading independent hospital in Chicago, to excel in safety, outcomes and the patient experience
Swedish Covenant Hospital has served the residents of Chicago's north and northwest side communities for more than 125 years, and we’re proud of our close ties with our community. The Swedish Covenant Hospital Foundation works to fulfill the hospital’s mission through philanthropy and engaging the community in partnerships. The hospital, along with Galter LifeCenter, Chicago’s leading medical fitness center located right on our campus, offers a wide variety of classes and events to promote wellness and keep you and your family in good health.
