Investigation of potential copyright issue
Please note this is about the text of this Wikipedia article; it should not be taken to reflect on the subject of this article. Do not restore or edit the blanked content on this page until the issue is resolved by an administrator, copyright clerk or OTRS agent.
If you have just labeled this page as a potential copyright issue, please follow the instructions for filing at the bottom of the box.
The previous content of this page or section has been identified as posing a potential copyright issue, as a copy or modification of the text from the source(s) below, and is now listed on Wikipedia:Copyright problems (listing):
Unless the copyright status of the text on this page is clarified, the problematic text or the entire page may be deleted one week after the time of its listing.
Temporarily, the original posting is still accessible for viewing in the page history.
To confirm your permission, you can either display a notice to this effect at the site of original publication or send an e-mail from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en at wikimedia dot org or a postal letter to the Wikimedia Foundation. These messages must explicitly permit use under CC-BY-SA and the GFDL. See Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials.
Note that articles on Wikipedia must be written from a neutral point of view and must be verifiable in published third-party sources; consider whether, copyright issues aside, your text is appropriate for inclusion in Wikipedia.
To demonstrate that this text is in the public domain, or is already under a license suitable for Wikipedia, click "Show".
Simply modifying copyrighted text is not sufficient to avoid copyright infringement—if the original copyright violation cannot be cleanly removed or the article reverted to a prior version, it is best to write the article from scratch. (See Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing.)
For license compliance, any content used from the original article must be properly attributed; if you use content from the original, please leave a note at the top of your rewrite saying as much. You may duplicate non-infringing text that you had contributed yourself.
It is always a good idea, if rewriting, to identify the point where the copyrighted content was imported to Wikipedia and to check to make sure that the contributor did not add content imported from other sources. When closing investigations, clerks and administrators may find other copyright problems than the one identified. If this material is in the proposed rewrite and cannot be easily removed, the rewrite may not be usable.
The John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County, formerly Cook County Hospital is a public urban teaching hospital in Chicago that provides primary, specialty and tertiary healthcare services to the five million residents of Cook County, Illinois. The hospital has a staff of 300 attending physicians along with more than 400 medical residents and fellows. The hospital campus, located at 1901 W. Harrison Street Chicago, Illinois, is a part of the 305-acre (123 ha) Illinois Medical District, which is one of the largest concentrations of medical facilities in the world.
The hospital’s 1,200,000 square feet (110,000 m2) represent the equivalent of 25 football fields. The layout of the facility organizes services in a “main street-style” to accommodate the needs of patients, physicians and staff. The hospital offers dedicated units for obstetrics and pediatrics, intensive care, and burns.
It boasts one of the best emergency rooms in the country and a Level 1 Trauma Center. The Adult ER treats over 110,000 patients annually, while the Pediatrics ER treats 45,000 children and adolescents each year.
The Ambulatory Screening Clinic treats approximately 105,000 patients per year. In 2003, The new Stroger Hospital Eye Clinic opened as the (then) most up-to-date eye center in the city of Chicago. All patient rooms in the 464-bed hospital are private or semi-private, with their own bathrooms, televisions, and telephones.
The hospital also serves as the hub for the Cook County Bureau of Health Services for delivery of specialty and sub-specialty care. More than 40% of the hospital’s space is dedicated to an outpatient Specialty Care Center, operated by the Bureau’s Ambulatory & Community Health Network. The Specialty Care Center sees 220,000 or more patient visits every year. The Stroger Hospital residency training and education program has a primary academic affiliation with nearby Rush Medical College for both undergraduate and graduate medical education. It is also has minor affiliations with Chicago Medical School, Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, and the University of Illinois College of Medicine.
The Stroger/New Cook County Hospital was completed in December 2002 and is housed in a facility located adjacent to the old Cook County Hospital building. In September 2014, Cook County Bureau of Economic Development began soliciting ideas and design concepts for a mixed-use redevelopment of the historic Hospital Building.
In 1983, Ron Sable, MD, and Renslow Sherer, MD, founded Chicago’s first HIV/AIDS clinic. Ten years later, the HIV/AIDS clinic was renamed the Sable/Sherer Clinic. This clinic treats one-third of Cook County’s HIV/AIDS patients. Today, services are delivered in a new facility, the Ruth Rothstein CORE Center.
The hospital traces its origins to the Board of Commissioners' establishment of a "Poor House" in 1834 to provide free medical care to indigents. By 1847, the Poor House was unable to meet the demands of the population. At Kinzie and State Streets, the County rented Tippecanoe Hall, which became the original Cook County Hospital.
The old Cook County Hospital building was used in the 1993 movie The Fugitive. County General Hospital, a fictional hospital that served as the setting for the NBCmedical dramaER, was loosely based on the old Cook County Hospital.
