Welcome to Cook County North Shore Hospital & Care Center.
Cook County North Shore Hospital and Care Center has a digital mammography machine. For those of you that have had to travel for the digital mammography and those who have yet to have this procedure done, you can have this procedure done locally. Referral not needed by a physician. For more information please call 218.387.3268.
The residents at the North Shore Care Center have been enjoying extended patio time with all the nice fall weather we've been having. A leaf tour up the Gunflint Trail provided an opportunity to see some more of the beautiful fall colors. When the weather isn't cooperating, there is now plenty to watch from our dining room windows as construction has begun on the Care Center! We are delighted that the construction isn't keeping our friends, families, and visitors from coming to see us. Our dance with The Portage Band on September 19th was well attended, and much fun was had by all. Thanks to the Portage Boys for navigating their equipment through our new entry!
October is now upon us, and we look forward to celebrating many events this month. On October 2nd, the residents will be busy making pizza as this is "National Pizza Month". History and trivia sessions will be held on Leif Erickson and Columbus Day. The monthly birthday party will be held on Wednesday, October 14 at 3 p.m. to honor Ophelia Bassett. Plenty of cake and ice cream will be served along with piano music by Doug Sanders. A special thank you to Eleanor Waha for providing a cake every month for the past 50+ years for our birthday parties!
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.
