Norwegian American Hospital, a 200-bed safety-net hospital in Chicago’s Humboldt Park neighborhood, recognized this need within its organization and embarked on a professional development partnership with the American Hospital Association that will help it engage and develop physicians to build a pipeline of future leaders.
