HEAL 2023 Report to Stakeholders

Launched in 2018 in partnership with Senator Durbin, the Chicago HEAL Initiative (Hospital Engagement Action and Leadership) is a historic commitment from the 10 leading hospitals serving Chicago to recognize their roles as community anchors and collaborate on 16 public commitments to reduce violence and health disparities in the 18 Chicago neighborhoods with the highest rates of violence, poverty and inequality. This report covers the first year of “chapter two” renewed commitments for 2022- 2024. Commitments include engaging in healthcare career pipeline development for HEAL- area residents who are high school and college students, community members, and incumbent employees as they begin and advance in healthcare careers.
