About Cook County Health & Hospitals System

As one of the largest public health systems in the country, the Cook County Health and Hospitals System (CCHHS) cares for more than 300,000 individuals resulting in over 1 million patient visits each year. Our mission to care for all, regardless of their ability to pay, dates back to 1835. In that time, we have cared for millions of patients and trained thousands of doctors, nurses and health professionals. We conduct important research making substantial contributions to current practices. With a patient-centric focus, we look to our teams to provide a commitment to leading edge practices and approaches, collegial relationships and the CCHHS mission.
