Thanksgiving will soon be upon us and hopefully we will take a moment to reflect on the areas that we are thankful for in our lives. As an organization, we are thankful for all of our employees who provide the care and services needed by our patients, residents, clients and community members. In particular, we would especially like to recognize those employees who are celebrating Milestone Anniversaries (5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 years) in 2013. Together, these employees have dedicated 350 years of service to Cook County North Shore Hospital and Care Center!!
