Mission Statement

Alivio Medical Center is a bilingual, bicultural organization committed to providing access to quality cost-effective health care to the Latino community, the uninsured and underinsured, and not to the exclusion of other cultures and races. This mission is expressed through the provision of services, advocacy, education and research and evaluation provided in an environment of caring and respect.

Description

Support services provided by Alivio include nutrition counseling, OB/GYN, nurse-midwife and nurse practitioner care, pediatrics, family practice services, immunizations, educational services, breast feeding courses, KidCare program information and enrollment, prenatal classes and care, childbirth and parenting classes, adult care, internal medicine, surgery, counseling, WIC services, health education, home visits, as well as overall comprehensive health care services. In addition, for the past 22 years Alivio has held the Alivio Y Salud: 5K Run, 5K Kids Run, and a two-mile Walk and Kids Dash. This event is the largest Hispanic amateur athletic event held in the Chicago area, and seeks to establish role models for young people as well as to educate families about the health benefits of exercise and proper nutrition.
