The University of Chicago Medicine is committed to improving health and wellness in the 12 zip codes where our closest neighbors live, work, learn and play. Through valued partnerships, UChicago Medicine leverages the strengths and talents of existing community assets to strategically address chronic conditions and other complex health needs on Chicago's historic South Side.
For fiscal 2018, UChicago Medicine provided more than $477 million in benefits and services to the community. This community benefit investment included supporting patients who rely on Medicare or Medicaid or who were unable to pay for care. It also included educating the next generation of health care professionals, supporting medical research and giving cash or in-kind donations to community groups for health-related activities.
Through the Urban Health Initiative, UChicago Medicine fosters and promotes collaborative community-based programs and services for residents on the South Side. These efforts are dedicated to creating partnerships and providing information that empowers South Side residents around increasing healthy lifestyles and reducing health disparities. This commitment extends to offering workshops and support groups, providing community-based seminars, and delivering prevention and wellness services.
UChicago Medicine is at the forefront of health equity in our South Side communities. In collaboration with our dedicated partners, we offer a variety of benefits to empower community members with broadening access to health and wellness resources.
Located in the Hyde Park neighborhood, UChicago Medicine is an anchor on the South Side. The medical campus is surrounded by neighborhoods experiencing unprecedented levels of growth and redevelopment — Woodlawn, North Kenwood/Oakland and beyond — leading to an ever-broadening network of communities and blurring the borders that once isolated Hyde Park from its neighbors. The results are a progressively richer culture and a shared appreciation for life on the South Side.
There are numerous opportunities to give back at the University of Chicago Medicine and the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital. Our volunteers are valued members of our team who play instrumental roles in helping us serve our patients and their families.
In May 2018, UChicago Medicine celebrated its 16th annual Day of Service and Reflection (DOSAR) where employees, residents and their friends and families volunteered to assist South Side organizations with various tasks such as gardening, cleaning and painting.
