Welcome to Cook County North Shore Hospital & Care Center.
The residents at the Care Center have been enjoying plenty of activities on the patio with the beautiful weather that we have been having this summer. There continues to be a lot of activity and excitement indoors as well, in anticipation of "Moving Day". A date hasn't been set yet as we await the final cleaning and inspections of new resident rooms in the first stage of construction here at the Care Center. Once that has been completed, a day will be set aside to move many of the residents into their new home. It should be a fun-filled day with residents, staff, volunteers, and families working together to accomplish the task. Of course, refreshments will be provided to keep everyone going!
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 North Shore Health 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.
