For more than a century we've been doing more for our community.
It's part of our mission. It's part of our values. It's part of every associate who chooses to work here. It's community service at its best. At Advocate Trinity Hospital we're partnering with schools, businesses, and community-based, faith-based, and other organizations in our community to help create a better tomorrow. From introducing teens to health care careers, to helping adults improve their health through prevention, our commitment inspires success.
Below are just a few examples of our commitment to the community.

Chicago's Southeast Side may be Chicago's best-kept secret.
Chicago's Southeast Side includes the communities of Auburn Park, Grand Crossing, Roseland, Pullman, South Chicago, and South Shore. Each faces the challenges that most urban communities have traditionally experienced-from improving home values to increasing graduation rates there are endless opportunities for change. And today, change is taking place faster than ever.
Most significantly, the South Works Steel Mill is being transformed into 576 acres of new neighborhoods and brand-new parkland. Storefronts are being renovated and historic business districts are experiencing a rebirth throughout the area. Metra is creating a new station that will link residents and visitors to downtown Chicago. And a major manufacturer is redeveloping 100 acres for a new facility that will create new opportunities for everyone. The plan is to build upon infrastructure and redevelopment investments and extend success throughout the community.
While the Southeast Side continues to evolve, the remarkable diversity of the community remains firmly in place. It's a neighborhood where people of different races, different religions, and different economic backgrounds have come together to create a special place to call home. In a community where change is continuous, the commitment to diversity is the one thing that remains constant. The people of the Southeast Side wouldn't have it any other way.
