BCBSIL Partners With Northwestern Medicine
JILL WOLOWITZ: The Chicago Cares Serve-a-thon is the largest day of volunteerism for businesses in Chicago. And of course, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois is a big part of that. This year, we sponsored our Chicago Cares Serve-a-thon outreach with Northwestern Madison. So, it's great that we're partnering with another pillar of health care in Chicago.
POSH CHARLES: Some of the schools we're in today are schools that we all support in different ways through Blue Cross and Northwestern Medicine. So, to be in places where our charitable dollars are parked and we're already doing other programming is really cool.
STEPHANIE VOMVOURAS: It means a lot to me to give back to the community and to help people. I mean, that's why I'm a physician in the first place. So, this is particularly meaningful.
JOHN KHOURY: Remembering why we do it and who we're doing it for it is an important foundation point to our organization.
LINDA HARRIS: All the students, when they come back to school, they deserve to come into a fresh building, a new year, and just be able to actually enjoy the scenery of their school.
ELEANORE WESTERBECK: Knowing that people spent their time and effort to make your school a better place for you to be every day, it means a lot.
JILL WOLOWITZ: It's a great opportunity to come out and support the principals, the teachers, the families, and most of all the kids.
For our employees, being in health care delivery, it's part of their DNA to serve people.
MARIBEL CALLOWAY: The happiness you can't go and describe how happy we are. And this is very important for us.
PHILIP BELT: Giving back to the community, just helping out.
ELEANORE WESTERBECK: You just get a feeling of giving back and feeling that you're really helping.
POSH CHARLES: Blue Cross and Northwestern medicine are two of Chicago's leading health care institutions. And giving back to the community together as business partners is wonderful.
