Advocate Health Care was founded more than 100 years ago by members of local faith communities. Our founders made a commitment to their communities. They sought to bring health care services to areas where they were not being provided. Today, Advocate Health Care continues this tradition to meet the health needs of the individuals, families, and communities we are privileged to serve.

Advocate is the largest health system in Illinois. Our faith based, not- for-profit health system is based in Downers Grove, Illinois. Advocate Health Care takes a wholistic view of health care. That means treating the whole person. And we believe the best way to treat the whole person is through an integrated system of care.
