For Our Employees
Message From Anthony Guaccio, President and CEO of Swedish Covenant Health
It’s an exciting time for all of us. Swedish Covenant Hospital and all of its affiliated entities are now a part of Swedish Covenant Health. This new name encapsulates the many ways the organization has evolved over the past 132 years, growing beyond a leading hospital and into a health care system offering a wide range of health and wellness services to Chicago’s north and northwest sides.
I want to recognize the efforts of everyone in all of our locations and our community who have been a part of our growth over the last 132 years. Moving forward we will continue to work together to focus on our goals of growth, quality and efficiency.
While this new name reflects a change in our positioning to the community, many things will not change as a result and we will remain committed to caring for our employees and the community. Specifically, employee hours, benefits, reporting structures and email addresses will not be changing.
This rebranding better enables us to share the many ways we can serve the health care needs of our community and become their first-choice provider and partner in health and wellness.
Thanks for the great work that you do and I look forward to a bright future for Swedish Covenant Health in serving our community.
Employee Wellness Program
Maintaining the health of our more than 2,500 employees is a critical part of our mission. Through targeted events, ongoing health screenings and wellness programs at Galter LifeCenter, we make a concerted effort to emphasize preventive care, when possible.
In collaboration with our medical staff, we have developed an employee wellness program to encourage employees to put their health first. The program focuses in part on keeping up-to-date on age-appropriate health screenings.
Our goal is to help prevent illness before it happens, and it starts with understanding your current health status and knowing how to lower your risk factors for the future. This emphasis on “workplace wellness” means deliberate, measurable tactics that help keep us healthy and reduce your health care costs.
You have the opportunity to get some of your wellness measurements through Employee Health Services by appointment. Additionally, if you are searching for a primary care physician or specialist, you can browse all of our physicians using Find a Doctor.
