The Norwegian American Hospital Foundation last night presented its first Power of Community Health Care Champion Award to AHA President and CEO Rick Pollack at its 2019 Power of Community Benefit, which will fund initiatives to address social determinants of health in the Chicago communities served by the hospital. “One of the things that makes Norwegian American Hospital so special is that over the years it has served very diverse populations, rooted in a neighborhood that has changed to accommodate large waves of new residents from many different backgrounds,” Pollack said in accepting the award. “Norwegian American Hospital has always been there, ready to care, for this vibrant community — no matter what it looked like.”
