Back in the bosom
Dr. Harley Brooks recently got a new heart at Advocate Christ Medical Center--and Advocate Trinity Hospital is now getting its old one back.
Charitable gifts are vital to the hospital
Advocate Trinity Hospital was built with the leadership of our neighbors more than a century ago and it continues to rely on the generosity of its donors. Charitable gifts are vital to helping us change lives and save lives — whether it is advancing our service offerings such as cardiovascular or stroke care, reaching out to the community through programs such as free HIV testing in the emergency room, or bringing health education to schools and senior centers.

Asthma Community Outreach
Asthma is a chronic disease that causes pain, loss of productivity and even death, but it can be self-managed. Gifts to this program help educate emergency room patients how to recognize triggers and avoid attacks. Philanthropy also supports an outreach program design to teach students and teachers about asthma.
Philanthropy will enable us to acquire life-like birthing and neo-natal simulators, which will be used to train caregivers for obstetric emergencies through practice drills. With improved confidence and preparedness, caregivers will be able to provide the best and safest care possible to patients.
Because cancer care is best provided close to home, Trinity Hospital is expanding and enhancing its offerings for cancer patients in Southeast Chicago. Building on its excellent radiology, pathology and surgical services, the hospital recently opened an outpatient infusion center and plans to add oncology-trained nurses and patient navigators to its staff. Philanthropy plays an important role in our ability to enhance these programs and services and provide the best possible care to our patients.
Trinity Hospital now provides minimally invasive diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation for cardiovascular disease to meet the growing needs of its community. With your support, Trinity Hospital will be able to offer more sophisticated and rapid diagnosis, non-surgical treatment for more cardiovascular conditions and advanced rehabilitation services.
This program partners health care providers and community members to improve the treatment and outcomes for people with diabetes, to promote early diagnosis and ultimately to prevent the onset of diabetes. Advocate Trinity Hospital's comprehensive approach includes classes for newly diagnosed individuals, an ongoing support group and diabetes screening and risk assessment activities. Gifts to this program provide educational tools and resources, particularly to address the needs of Latino and African-American populations.
Healthier Communities Initiatives
Most programs included in this initiative are preventive outreach to address the needs of underserved populations on the south side of Chicago. These are often offered in partnership with faith communities, schools and other community organizations.
Nursing Education and Resource Center
Patients benefit when nurses grow professionally. The center is a place for gaining the information and capabilities they need to serve their patients.
Advocate Trinity Hospital's service area has the highest incidence of stroke in the city of Chicago. As the main care provider in the community, Trinity Hospital is committed to providing the best treatment options for stroke victims. Your gift will help Trinity Hospital ensure that community members recognize the signs and symptoms of strokes through outreach programs and education.
Women's Health Initiatives
Gifts to this program ensure that South-Side women of all ages have access to early diagnoses for breast cancer. This program educates women about the importance of early detection and strives to decrease the length of time between an abnormal mammogram, final diagnosis and treatment planning-for better mental health as well as faster recovery.
