CASE STUDY: Expanding Behavioral Health Care Access to Foster Community Wellness

Chicago, Illinois

For residents living in Chicago’s 60623 ZIP code, known as South Lawndale, Saint Anthony Hospital (SAH) Community Wellness Programs have provided a wide variety of free social and health-related services for more than 20 years. The safety-net hospital is committed to delivering high-quality care for those who need it the most, such as immigrant, Hispanic and Black populations, which are disproportionately under or uninsured and more likely to suffer from health disparities compared to their white counterparts.
