Community Nurse serves as a community health care center for residents of the western suburbs of Chicago, focusing on those who have limited access to care. Community Nurse values patient dignity, community collaboration, prevention and wellness by delivering coordinated and integrated health care services and education.
For the past 90 years, Community Nurse has been providing health and dental care to low income and uninsured residents of the Western Suburbs of Chicago. We have over 75 volunteer primary care providers, dentists, and specialists, along with Adventist LaGrange Memorial Hospital, who see our patients at no cost.
Many people know us for our Secret Santa program, which provides Christmas toys, outfits, books and school supplies for our pediatric patients who come in at least once a year for their annual physical and dental checkup.
The Agency also operates the Carousel Resale Shop and the Corner Shoppe, which relies on over 300 volunteers a week to keep the shops open and filled with merchandise. The revenue from these shops supports the agency clinics and programs.
Our vision is a healthy and productive community where all residents have access to quality health care.
