NorthShore – Edward-Elmhurst Health has announced a unified name and brand for its newly combined health system: Endeavor Health. 

NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore), including Swedish Hospital and Northwest Community Healthcare, recently merged with Edward-Elmhurst Health, creating the third-largest health system in Illinois serving an area of 4.2 million residents.

Endeavor Health serves more than 1.3 million patients across Chicagoland, providing access to more than 7,100 physicians and advanced practice providers across more than 300 sites of care including eight Magnet-designated, award-winning acute care hospitals: Edward (Naperville), Elmhurst, Evanston, Glenbrook (Glenview), Highland Park, Northwest Community (Arlington Heights), Skokie and Swedish (Chicago) and Linden Oaks Behavioral Health Hospital. All hospitals will retain their names and will join with all outpatient and corporate locations, as well as the health system's single integrated medical group and clinically integrated network under the Endeavor Health brand.

"Both inspirational and aspirational, Endeavor Health embodies our mission to help everyone in our communities be their best," said J.P. Gallagher, president and CEO of Endeavor Health, in a statement. "Together, our 27,000-plus team members, as part of one team, are driven by our commitment – our Endeavor – to set a new standard for healthcare by delivering a truly personal patient experience combined with seamless access to pioneering, world-class care. As a health system based in our communities, we believe this is not only a point of differentiation for us now, but a North Star for what healthcare can and should be in the future."

Endeavor Health has the third-largest largest medical group in Illinois, as well as five Clinical Institutes, including Cardiovascular, Primary Care, Cancer and the nationally ranked Neurosciences and Orthopaedic & Spine Institutes. Endeavor also serves as a hub for research and innovation with more than 550 active clinical trials and the nation's largest primary care-embedded clinical genomics program.

To date, the health system has awarded more than $10.6 million to more than 30 community-based partnerships through its Community Investment Funds. These funds were first established when NorthShore and Edward-Elmhurst Health came together, with the next round of recipients to be announced in January.

Branded channels and communications, including websites, signage, uniforms and more will transition over the coming months, culminating in a new brand advertising campaign in the first quarter of 2024.
