Advocate Health Centers
Advocate Health Centers are community-based medical practices that provide a full range of primary care, specialty care, and support services. Each year we care for over 200,000 patients-from newborns to seniors-in 16 locations throughout the city and suburbs. And we don't just serve the community-we're part of it. Our people typically live where they work, they give back to their hometowns, and they take great pride in knowing that they're making a difference in the lives of their neighbors as well as their patients.
We are so serious about patient satisfaction that we survey our patients three different ways to make sure we know what we are doing well and where we have opportunities to improve. Our relationship with Advocate Health Care gives us resources and support that are among the best in the world. Beyond that, our relationship with the communities we serve gives us a career experience that will remind you again and again exactly why you chose health care. You're going to like it here.
We're bringing the best possible care to Chicagoland. Thanks to people like you.

We also have programs focusing on prevention such as our breast health, childhood immunization, and influenza programs. Through these initiatives, we stress education, prevention, screening, early diagnosis and treatment, careful monitoring of symptoms, and a wide variety of wellness activities.
Convenience is a priority. Our Centers offer evening and weekend hours; as an associate, you too would benefit from our flexible scheduling options. To enhance patient convenience, many of our Centers also provide on-site services such as laboratory, x-ray, and ultrasound. Many Centers also provide specialty medical services, including cardiology, gastroenterology, neurology, orthopedics, and obstetrics-gynecology, to name just a few.
As you can see, Advocate Health Centers have been designed with our patients' care and convenience in mind. We're proud of our Centers, and welcome associates who want to join us in putting our patients first.
