Grants Make a Profound Difference

Highland Park Hospital

NorthShore Highland Park Hospital

NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) and dozens of other community health organizations are grateful to be on the receiving end of gifts from The Healthcare Foundation of Highland Park, a volunteer-based foundation that has awarded $75 million in grants during the past 12 years.

This year the Foundation awarded more than $6 million in grants to 52 different organizations, including an award of $4 million to NorthShore. Since 2000, the hospital has received $56 million in grants.

“I’ve heard people who receive services from area organizations say ‘I wouldn’t be here without your support,’” said Jim Styer, Chairman of the Healthcare Foundation of Highland Park. “That’s pretty powerful; every organization we grant to is terrific and well deserving.”

The Healthcare Foundation of Highland Park was created out of the merger of Highland Park Hospital into NorthShore University HealthSystem in 2000. The Foundation carries on NorthShore Highland Park Hospital’s long tradition of promoting health-related community projects, which were previously supported by the Highland Park Hospital Foundation. Grants are awarded to local organizations that improve the health of those in the community.

“The communities that we serve have doubly benefited by this merger,” said Jesse Peterson Hall, President of NorthShore Highland Park Hospital.

“NorthShore has made many improvements in clinical programs and facilities at Highland Park Hospital,” said Hall. “The contributions from the Healthcare Foundation of Highland Park to both the hospital and the many grant recipients have had an enormous and positive impact on the health and welfare of the community. We are very pleased that both the Foundation and the Hospital work so well together on behalf of our neighbors.”

The Foundation’s 11 trustees are all non-paid volunteers from Highland Park and Glencoe. “We are honored to support so many programs, which are instrumental in improving the overall health and well-being of those within in the communities served by NorthShore Highland Park Hospital and beyond,” said Styer. “It’s truly a labor of love and a wonderful opportunity to be able to assist the organizations.”
