Endeavor Health is privileged to serve more than 1.3 million patients across Chicagoland, providing access to more than 7,100 expert physicians and advanced practice providers across more than 300 sites of care including eight Magnet-designated, award-winning acute care hospitals: Edward (Naperville), Elmhurst, Evanston, Glenbrook (Glenview), Highland Park, Northwest Community (Arlington Heights), Skokie and Swedish (Chicago) and Linden Oaks Behavioral Health Hospital. All hospitals will retain their names and will join together with all outpatient and corporate locations, as well as the health system's single integrated medical group and clinically integrated network under the Endeavor Health brand.

Patients will continue to receive the expert care and high-quality services they do today, delivered by the providers they know and trust while benefiting from broader access to specialties and sub-specialties, seamlessly connected throughout the system.
