The Auxiliary Board is a non-profit organization of Chicago’s young professionals who are dedicated to raising funds for Northwestern Memorial Hospital. Since becoming affiliated with the hospital in 1987, The Auxiliary Board has committed more than $2,000,000 to enhance treatment for Northwestern Memorial’s patients and their families through a host of patient care initiatives.

Northwestern Memorial ranks 13th in the nation in the U.S. News & World Report 2017-18 Honor Roll of America’s Best Hospitals. The hospital is also recognized in 11 of 16 clinical specialties rated by U.S. News and rated No. 1 in Illinois and Chicago in the 2017-18 state and metro rankings.

Our Cause

The Auxiliary Board recently pledged its support to a pivotal project that will explore cardiogenic shock (CS) and the potential role of multidisciplinary shock teams in improving outcomes and saving lives. This project will be led by three talented physician-scientists at Northwestern Medicine: Duc Thinh Pham, MD, in the Division of Cardiac Surgery; Esther Vorovich, MD, in the Division of Cardiology; and Arif Jivan, MD, PhD, a Cardiovascular Disease Fellow.
