Northwestern Memorial's Patient and Family Assistance Fund, which is financed entirely through philanthropy, helped provide additional care and services to 118 patients and families in fiscal year 2013. These patients come from all over the United States as well as from other countries such as Mexico and Saudi Arabia.

Most often, patients need additional services such as home nursing visits, transportation and housing for extended patient stays at the Worcester House, a nearby apartment complex. But the Patient and Family Assistance Fund can cover a wide variety of needs, such as clothing for patients who enter through the Emergency Department and have their clothing cut away, stays at single room occupancy hotels for homeless patients who are receiving IV antibiotics, meals and cab vouchers.

You can donate on this page to make a difference in the lives of patients in need. For more information about philanthropic opportunities in the Patient and Family Assistance Fund, contact Kathryn Michael at Northwestern Memorial Foundation at
