Welcome to Cook County North Shore Hospital & Care Center.
In October 2015, we reported the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) Foundation awarded a grant of $7,000 toward the purchase of a bariatric E-Z mat and an x-ray imaging chair. The grant was written and submitted by Caroline Hanford, Radiology Department Manager here at Cook County North Shore Hospital and Care Center. The magazine for the American Society of Radiologic Technologists, Scanner, asked Caroline for information to share about the Radiology Department, our facility and her impetus to submit the grant application that focuses on safety. Caroline knew there would be an article about our receipt of the grant but we were all excited to see Caroline on the cover of the December 2015/January 2016 edition of the Scanner.
The residents at North Shore Care Center will try to beat "cabin fever" with a full calendar of activities scheduled in February. There is a lot to look forward to all month!
On February 2, the Community Band brought their jazz music to the Care Center for a lively evening of Dixieland tunes.
Everyone is encouraged to wear red on Friday, February 5th to support Heart Health Awareness Month.

Paul and Carol Schaap of Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan and Grand Marais recently donated $52,000 to the Cook County North Shore Hospital and Care Center towards the purchase and installation of two Pharmagard 797 hoods that will be used during the chemotherapy process.
It is a gift that will - in the future - save Cook County cancer patients from having to drive to Duluth or the Twin Cities to receive some or all of their chemotherapy treatments.
