“We look forward to furthering access to primary health care services for the residents of Palatine and the surrounding area,” said Bob Tanner, President and CEO of Greater Family Health. “Our expanded presence and continued partnership with the existing health care system in the northwest suburbs will not only increase access to care, but reduce costs and improve the overall health of the area,” Tanner concluded.
Northwest Community Hospital Foundation has shared considerable resources to support the renovation and equipping of the Palatine location. Greater Family Health and Northwest Community Hospital have enjoyed a long-standing partnership, initiated in 2013, when Greater Family Health began planning for its Health Center in Wheeling. “The Foundation’s generosity has been absolutely instrumental in making this Health Center a reality” furthered Tanner.
A Ribbon Cutting/Grand Opening celebration is likely to occur in May, depending upon the state of the pandemic.
