What is inspired care?


New colorectal cancer screening guidelines announced

You may have seen, heard and experienced Swedish Covenant Hospital’s model of “Inspired Care.” It’s more than a motto; those two words represent the many things that motivate us to continually care for you like a member of our family. 

More than 130 years ago, Swedish Covenant Hospital opened its doors in a north side neighborhood of Chicago—at that time only 50 years old—with the goal of serving our community with compassion. We’ve proven our commitment for over a century, growing in size and specialty but not in heart. 

“Hospitals can make you feel like you’re just a statistic, and we’ve been working diligently to correct that,” said Anthony Guaccio, President and CEO of Swedish Covenant Hospital. “We care more about the care we give. That’s why we go above and beyond to keep you happy and healthy.” 

How we better care for you

We’ve proven our commitment to you through the quality and diversity of our services, including offering a variety of public health screenings to encourage prevention and opening two Immediate Care Centers in Sauganash and North Center to provide emergency, nonlife-threatening care with the ability to schedule an appointment within 24-48 hours

We recognize that hospitals can be a frightening and stressful setting, and we want to help. We encourage our patients to take advantage of our healing garden, Artist in Residence program and other supportive services. 

Our physicians

Great health care begins with a strong team. Swedish Covenant Hospital offers more than 600 physicians and specialists in over 50 medical specialties. When you choose a Swedish Covenant Hospital physician, you can receive high quality care by board-certified physicians who are dedicated to building long-lasting relationships.  

The physicians on staff at Swedish Covenant Hospital are made up in part by the Swedish Covenant Medical Group. Through close collaboration with one another and with you, we deliver individualized, comprehensive treatment plans without the back and forth that can keep you from getting the care you need when you need it.
