About Sinai Chicago
Sinai Health System (SHS) is one the largest private safety net healthcare systems in Illinois. SHS includes Mount Sinai Hospital, Schwab Rehabilitation Hospital, Holy Cross Hospital, Sinai Children's Hospital, Sinai Medical Group, Sinai Community Institute, and Sinai Urban Health Institute and employs approximately 4000 individuals. For nearly 100 years, the organization's mission has been to improve the health of the individuals and the communities we serve.
Called Chicago's "safety-net giant," Sinai Health System's merger with Holy Cross Hospital in 2013 created a unique Jewish-Catholic partnership united in a mission to bring quality, compassionate health care and social services to some of Chicago's most economically challenged communities. Even before the Affordable Care Act, Sinai's institutions have emphasized community wellness by focusing on economic and social disparities that impact health. Today, there are 1.5 million Chicagoans in Sinai's service area.
