Welcome to Cook County North Shore Hospital & Care Center.
Cook County North Shore Hospital and Care Center has the capability of sending EKG's to specialists via the internet. All EKG's are read by a cardiologist, patients 18 and under are read by a pediatric cardiologist. This can be of help to the physician covering the Emergency Department because they have the ability to call the cardiologist on call if there are any questions as to what is seen on the EKG, possibly speeding up the care of a patient with an abnormal EKG. Call 387-3268 for more information or to schedule your routine test with a physicians order.
Cook County North Shore Hospital and Care Center has magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). A mobile MRI service available every other Saturday. Please call 387-3268 for more information.

Everyone is looking forward to outdoor activities in April to celebrate National Garden Month, Earth Day, and Arbor Day. The residents will start planting seeds indoors and hope to spend time on the patios for fresh air, sunshine, and garden clean-up. There will also be a lunch outing to the Senior Center on the Arrowhead Transit bus.
