Swedish Covenant Hospital and Affiliated Entities Rebranding to Swedish Covenant Health
Swedish Covenant Hospital and all of its affiliated entities are now a part of Swedish Covenant Health. This new name encapsulates the many ways the organization has evolved over the past 132 years, growing beyond a leading hospital and into a health care system offering a wide range of health and wellness services to Chicago’s north and northwest sides.
The Swedish Covenant Health name was chosen to represent our many established and distinctive organizations that continue to serve our community, including:
- Swedish Covenant Hospital, offering more than 50 academic-level medical specialties
- Swedish Covenant Medical Group, employing more than 150 board-certified physicians and advanced practice providers
- Galter LifeCenter, Chicago’s only certified medical fitness center
- Swedish Covenant Hospital Foundation, our fundraising arm that supports many key programs that benefit our community
- Swedish Covenant Physician Partners, our clinically integrated managed care organization that participates in many insurance plans
These five entities, the brands that they include and all of the employees within will now become a part of Swedish Covenant Health, a comprehensive health care system that has evolved to meet the community’s health care needs. While the name is changing, the organization is not changing ownership.
“As Swedish Covenant Health, our mission is to serve the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of our diverse community with professional excellence and human kindness,” said Anthony Guaccio, President and CEO of Swedish Covenant Health. “We will accomplish our mission by implementing our vision of being our community’s first-choice provider and partner in health and wellness.”
The announcement was recently communicated to approximately 3,000 employees, staff and volunteers. Installation of new signage has begun and will continue with a launch campaign theme of “All Together Better.”
“We are excited to share this transition to Swedish Covenant Health to highlight the many areas within our organization that offer services to our community,” said Guaccio. “We have evolved beyond a leading hospital and into a comprehensive health care system.”
Several recent projects illustrate the growth of Swedish Covenant Health, including an Emergency Department renovation, the recent opening of an inpatient hospice on campus and the building of The Clark in Andersonville, which will begin seeing patients later this year. “It’s an exciting time for our organization as we continue to serve the many health care needs of our diverse patient population with a strategic focus on quality, efficiency and growth,” said Guaccio.
Swedish Covenant Health will remain a key economic driver as well as an important community partner for its north and northwest side neighborhoods. “I want to thank our community members who have chosen Swedish Covenant Health for their health care needs, and also our entire staff for their excellent work in serving our patients,” said Guaccio. “I look forward to a bright future for Swedish Covenant Health as we partner with our community to serve their health and wellness needs.”
