Northwestern Memorial Hospital Mission Northwestern Memorial Hospital is an academic medical center where the patient comes first. We are an organization of caregivers who aspire to consistently high standards of quality, cost-effectiveness and patient satisfaction. We seek to improve the health of the communities we serve by delivering a broad range of services with sensitivity to the individual needs of our patients and their families. We are bonded in an essential academic and service relationship with the Feinberg School of Medicine of Northwestern University. The quality of our services is enhanced through their integration with education and research in an environment that encourages excellence of practice, critical inquiry and learning. 2 0 0 9 E M P L O Y E E C A M P A I G N The Best Care Begins With Us • We Make a Difference Giving Made Easy By going to our special campaign Web site, you can arrange to give a one-time gift, recurring gift or deduction from your bi-weekly paycheck.
