Welcome to Cook County North Shore Hospital & Care Center.
May is Older Americans Month, a month designated to raise awareness about issues facing older adults, and highlight the way older Americans are advocating for themselves, their peers, and their communities. May 8 - 14 is also National Nursing Home Week, a time to honor the indomitable spirit of residents and recognizing staff who face each day with a sense of purpose and compassion.
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.

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.
Beginning Tuesday, September 8, CCNSHCC 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.

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.
