Midwest CareCenter recently entered into a collaborative agreement to provide hospice services to patients and families of Northwestern Memorial Hospital. This is an exciting opportunity for Midwest CareCenter to expand our services and to partner with one of the top healthcare systems in the country.

Murphy, executive vice president, Northwestern Memorial HealthCare and chief operating officer, Northwestern Memorial Hospital. "As a nationally recognized palliative care and hospice provider, Midwest CareCenter is the ideal partner. The organization serves patients in our area, shares our values, and is committed to extending patients and families exemplary support for care that is stable and pain-free all within the comforting surroundings of home."
