Building a Stronger Community

  • The Nazareth Family Center provides conference rooms, a gymnasium and an auditorium, all available to community groups and organizations at minimal or no cost. These meeting rooms fill an unmet need in the community and have been used for hosting such events as U.S. Congressman Luis Gutierrez's Job Fair, a forum on Mayor Richard M. Daley's Early Child Care and Education Plan, a child welfare agency training program, American Cancer Society board meetings and Chicago Public Schools principal meetings. Local schools use the gymnasium for basketball practice. The center also serves as the local polling place for elections.
  • Bringing health care to those who lack access - Services are available through the Family Practice Center that provides outreach to high-risk pregnant females and high-risk geriatric patients. Services include everything from general health care and prenatal care to annual school physicals, pregnancy testing and minor surgical procedures.

Our goal is to provide excellent care.

In pursuit of that goal, your health care team is committed to ensuring that the care, treatment, and services you receive are both high quality and safe. As part of our commitment, we seek accreditation from The Joint Commission (TJC). The Joint Commission provides unscheduled inspections to determine if we are in compliance with standards that they set for quality, patient safety, and the safety of the environment. If you feel, for any reason, that we have not met this goal during your stay, we encourage you to let us know by contacting a member of your care team during your stay or by contacting our Customer Relations Department at 312-770-2284.

In addition, as a condition of our accreditation, we are required to advise you that you may also contact The Joint Commission or other hospital regulatory agencies directly to express your concerns. You may do this without contacting us. The following provides information about the ways in which you can contact The Joint Commission or other regulatory agencies.
