Cook County Health & Hospitals System: A Year in Review
June 2014-June 2015
The Cook County Health & Hospitals System is in the midst of a transformative journey: continuing on with its historical mission of providing care to those most in need while adapting to an expanded role as a steward of population health and a Medicaid managed care health plan. It is with this lens that CCHHS is taking an innovative and integrated approach to the fulfillment of our mission by aligning our work as a provider of care, both in traditional and correctional settings, a public health authority and a health plan.
The system has achieved significant success in numerous arenas during the last 12 months thanks to the dedication and hard work of countless CCHHS clinicians, employees and partners and the aligned support of the CCHHS Board of Directors, Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle, Cook County commissioners, and legislators. This June CCHHS also recognized the one year anniversary of Dr. Jay Shannon’s tenure as CEO. This brief provides a summary of achievements CCHHS attained between June 2014 and June 2015.
