For many people in the Chicago area, it is hard to access the medical care they need, resulting in delayed treatment or unnecessary and costly trips to emergency rooms. Multiple health care providers often treat the same patient with little or no communication. Fragmented care and duplicated services decrease the quality of care patients receive, while increasing health care costs. A $5 million donation from BMO Harris Bank is helping Rush to break this expensive, inefficient cycle.
Funding from BMO Harris Bank will set in motion new, sustainable models of health care delivery to bolster care for people in underserved communities on Chicago’s West and South Sides. It also will develop educational curricula to train a new health care workforce, targeting health professionals like community health workers and care coordinators.
