Cook County Health & Hospitals System CORE Center Announces $150,000 Grant for Project CONNECT

March 28, 2013

The Ruth M. Rothstein CORE Center announces that Project CONNECT was refunded by The Chicago Community Trust (CCT) under its Improving Access to Care initiative. Project CONNECT transitions HIV positive patients to outpatient care services at the CORE Center.

“Project CONNECT creates a personal connection between the medical staff and the patient. This relationship allows us to improve the patient care experience at the hospital and address barriers to care that might prevent patients from transitioning to outpatient care at the CORE Center. We are here to serve and to make patients feel as comfortable as possible, and Project CONNECT allows us to provide better personal care,” said Dr. Weinstein, Chief Operating Officer of the Ruth M. Rothstein CORE Center and Chairman, Department of Medicine, Cook County Health and Hospitals System.
