Welcome to Cook County North Shore Hospital & Care Center.
Winter is quickly approaching in Cook County, which also means the end of the year is as well. Don't forget to have your Lab and X-Ray tests done or get your therapy appointments scheduled before the end of the year at North Shore Health. This is especially important for those patients whose health insurance benefits may change after the end of the year or those traveling south for the winter. Please call 218-387-3040 for scheduling and questions.
September was a busy month for the residents at the Care Center. We took advantage of the beautiful fall weather spending time on the patio, knowing that cooler weather is right around the corner. We are also planning a fall leaf tour on the Arrowhead bus to enjoy some spectacular fall colors before they disappear. On September 20, we honored our three centenarians with a cake and ice cream social. Congratulations to Lu Pettijohn, Ethel Leng, and Phyllis Noyes!
October is here with a lot of fun activities all month. The residents will be busy with craft projects for our annual holiday craft sale to be held in November. As the weather cools, we will be sharing recipes and doing some fun fall baking too. We will be making pretzels for Oktoberfest, and some "hoot owls" for a fun Halloween treat!
We have transitioned! On April 1, 2016, we officially became Cook County Hospital District d/b/a North Shore Health. We celebrated with cake and treats in the conferece room for all employees. You should begin seeing the use of the new logo as items are purchased and reordered. Every employee was given a new shirt with the new logo and name.
Beginning Tuesday, September 8, North Shore Health will close the Care Center entrance and parking area accessed off of West 5th Street for construction.
Please access the Care Center using the 5th Avenue West Entrance through the "Delivery Entrance". Temporary signs will be posted.
For further information on changes to traffic patterns and parking, and to follow along with the construction progress, please visit our construction blog-site by clicking the link below, or by going to http://www.nshorehospitalconstruction.com. Information will also be available on Boreal and WTIP.
We are very excited to begin Phase 1 of our project, however we do aplogize for the inconvenience this planned construction may cause the Care Center visitors and community, and we appreciate your patience while we work to comeplete this important project. Thank you.
