Health and Medicine has joined with other organizations to create the Emergency Network to Save Cook County Health Services. Our goal is to strengthen the Cook County Bureau of Health Services by demanding a reversal of the draconian cuts to services and staff, creating a temporary trusteeship to oversee the financial and managerial operations of the system including a nationwide search for new leadership of the bureau, and researching and proposing new ways to financially support the system.
Health and Medicine believes the only way to create a truly seamless, comprehensive health care safety net is to work toward a northern Illinois, regional safety net that includes all of the surrounding counties.
