The Women’s Board educates, supports and advocates for a healthy community, with members serving as ambassadors between NorthShore and the community.
The Women’s Board of Skokie Hospital was established in 2000 and joined NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) Foundation following NorthShore’s acquisition of Skokie Hospital on January 1, 2009.
To advance patient care and outcomes, the Women’s Board of Skokie Hospital has established a Nursing Certification Scholarship Fund to provide funding for advanced certification in medical specialties. This additional training allows Skokie Hospital to maintain Nursing Magnet status, a recognized indicator of the highest nursing quality. Three scholarships have already been awarded with more to follow.
Our philanthropic project, Have a Healthy Heart, includes providing state-of-the-art equipment for NorthShore Cardiology Services at Skokie Hospital to ensure that all patients receive the latest lifesaving treatments available. Cardiovascular illness is one of the primary health concerns in our community and heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. The Women’s Board is dedicated to providing the tools to best assist patients through treatment and rehabilitation of complex heart conditions through their fundraising efforts.
New members are always welcome. We encourage you to join with our Executive Committee and members at large in supporting an outstanding healthcare facility in our community. Please join or renew your membership with the Women’s Board of Skokie Hospital.
