Swedish Covenant Health Joining the NorthShore Family

We anticipate partnering with NorthShore University HealthSystem starting January 1, 2020. We share a common mission and vision with NorthShore based on a mutual commitment to the neighborhood and serving the community. We have a shared belief that the best healthcare is local, rooted in the community and defined by positive relationships, exceptional experiences and quality care delivery. 

Swedish Covenant Hospital will remain a full-service acute care community hospital. 

Once we fully integrate our operations, you can expect the same excellent care you currently receive with the benefit of expanded access to leading edge specialists. Patients can also expect more services available locally, more seamless care coordination and improvements to our electronic medical record system.

What does this mean for you now? 

  • You can continue seeing your doctor in the same location and schedule appointments as you do now.
  • All insurance plans currently accepted will continue to be accepted by Swedish.
  • Billing and payment processes remain the same. You will continue to receive bills with the Swedish name, and pay them as you have in the past.

Working together with NorthShore enables Swedish Covenant Health to leverage the leadership and guidance of one of the top 100 healthcare organizations in the country, known for outstanding quality care and innovation. This partnership will provide resources that will further enable us to offer the very best care with the latest technologies while continuously advancing patient care.

We look forward to serving you and our community as we move forward into an exciting new chapter. 

Thank you for your continued trust and support.
