Swedish Covenant Hospital is a nonprofit teaching hospital located on the north side of Chicago, Illinois. The hospital offers over 50 medical specialties, including neurosurgery for the spine and brain, integrative cancer care, heart services (including electrophysiology), women's health services, childbirth and emergency services.[1] The hospital has 312 beds, more than 600 physicians[1] and 2,500 employees.[2] The hospital is accredited by the American Osteopathic Association's Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program.[3]

Swedish Covenant Hospital was founded as the Home of Mercy on April 1, 1886 by the Swedish Evangelical Covenant Church Mission Friends.

Centers, Departments and Institutions[edit]

Chicago Brain & Spine Institute[edit]

In 2010, the Hospital opened the Chicago Brain & Spine Institute, a comprehensive program emphasizing back and spine health and individualized treatment, with surgical intervention as a last alternative. The program incorporates complementary medicine and therapy programs as well as conventional treatment of physical therapy and pain management. It also incorporates the wellness programs at Galter Life Center (see below).[36]

The surgeons at the Chicago Brain & Spine Institute utilize minimally invasive spinal surgery when the situation warrants it. While the patient lies on their side, very narrow tools and a camera are inserted through a tiny opening about the size of a pen to fix the disc that is causing the discomfort, without disturbing important back muscles. The procedure is known to offer a rapid recovery and a faster return to normal activities.[37]

In June 2016, the Chicago Brain & Spine Institute, which was formerly known as the Chicago Back Institute, was renamed after the additional integration of neurologists and a new neurosurgeon specializing in brain surgery.

The hospital and medical group employs both OB/GYNs and certified nurse midwives[44] for women’s health services, including childbirth.

The procedures and programs in the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory include: Cardiac catheterization, angioplasty and stents, cardiac ablation, pacemaker and ICD implants, pacemaker and defibrillator clinic and electrophysiology program.[51]
