Contributions to this fund benefit CNS Home Health and Hospice, part of Northwestern Medicine, HomeCare Physicians, the Palliative Medicine Program and The Home Centered Care Institute. These organizations work to promote compassionate, comprehensive, physician-directed medical care to homebound, chronically ill and terminal patients. In particular, fundraising is currently ongoing for:
HomeCare Physicians — Since 1997, HomeCare Physicians have visited more than 80,000 homebound individuals to help them manage a wide range of illnesses and injuries. As a result, they are seeing a drastic reduction in hospitalizations and even visits to the emergency room. On average, HCP can make 12 house calls for the expense of one ER visit. This $6 million campaign will help HCP reach more patients with upgraded mobile diagnostic and treatment technology.
