“We look forward to improving access to primary health care services for residents of Palatine and surrounding areas,” said Bob Tanner, president and CEO of Greater Family Health. “Our expanded presence and continued partnership with the existing health care system in the Northwest suburbs will not only increase access to care, but reduce costs and improve the overall health of the region,” Tanner concluded.

The North West Community Hospital Foundation has shared considerable resources to support the renovation and equipping of the Palatine site. Greater Family Health and Northwest Community Hospital have a long-standing partnership, which began in 2013 when Greater Family Health began planning its Wheeling Health Center. “The generosity of the Foundation was absolutely instrumental in making this health center a reality,” continued Mr. Tanner.

A groundbreaking/dedication ceremony will likely take place in May, depending on the state of the pandemic.

Greater Family Health is the region’s first federally licensed health center, providing the full range of quality, affordable, fully integrated primary care services to nearly 59,000 area residents by more than 178,000 medical, behavioral health and dental appointments each year.

Greater Family Health currently offers healthcare services at 9 additional locations in DeKalb, Elgin, Hanover Park, McHenry, Streamwood, Sycamore and Wheeling. Services include family and adult medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics, gynecology, dental care, behavioral health care including counselling, psychiatry and treatment for substance use disorders, as well as a range of support services.

Greater Family Health is Joint Commission Accredited, Certified Primary Care Medical Home, repeatedly recognized nationally for health outcomes and cost-effectiveness, and provides care regardless of the patient’s ability to pay.
