Grant Summary

As two of the largest, longest-running and most respected organizations in the western suburbs of Chicago, Community Nurse Health Center and our longtime behavioral health partner, Pillars Community Services, are exploring the possibility of an enhanced partnership, up to and including full merger. We are requesting funding of $50,000 from TCI to help support a portion of the outside services needed to facilitate this innovative project to fully integrate medical, dental, and behavioral health services for low-income individuals and families. Implementation of the merger, which would be effective 1/1/2018, includes technology integration, leadership development, and establishing an organizational culture to ensure promotion of patient-centered, integrated care.
