At Advocate Health Care, people are our inspiration; changing lives is our passion. Everyday across Advocate's more than 250 sites of care, our 32,000 associates and 6,000 affiliated physicians focus on providing excellent care and service. With 10 hospitals and two fully integrated children's hospitals, Advocate has the largest physician and hospital network in the state and is one of Chicagoland's 10 largest employers. With more than 168,000 inpatient admissions and 1,655,000 outpatient visits, Advocate treats more hearts and provides care for more cancer and pediatric patients than any other health system in Illinois.
That is important because research shows there is a positive relationship between the number of procedures performed and quality outcomes. Named among the nation's top health systems, Advocate operates the largest trauma network in Illinois, including five Level I trauma centers and two Level II trauma centers. Four Advocate hospitals have earned Magnet® recognition for excellence in nursing.
