Together, we make it possible

Donors like you are an important part of the team at Abbott Northwestern Hospital.

Like our dedicated caregivers, providers, technicians and support staff, donors help us build on our strengths and pioneer new approaches that lead to better treatments for our patients. They help us take care of the little things that really matter when a person is most vulnerable. They help us change lives.

Priority project: Nursing Excellence Initiative

Patient care is changing quickly. Our population is aging,and patients are hospitalized with more complex health conditions than in the past. At the same time, many of our most experienced nurses are nearing retirement.

The Nursing Excellence Initiative is a multi-year,multi-million dollar effort that will help prepare our nurses for the challenges ahead. It will also strengthen our ability to retain a dedicated nursing staff representing diverse skills and expertise.   

Watch our video highlighting the role of nurses at Abbott Northwestern and why investing in nurses is critical to our future.
