Union Health Service, Inc. today will expand its specialty and primary care services by opening a facility at 1325 Howard St. in Evanston.
The Evanston Center, with 5,000 square feet of space, will offer three additional primary care physicians and specialty services that include general surgery, cardiology, endocrinology and gastroenterology.
Founded in 1955, Union Health Service was organized by the Service Employees International Union to provide managed care services through its own medical staff to union members. Today, with the addition of the Evanston Center, UHS operates six facilities serving over 50,000 residents in the metropolitan Chicago area.
The Evanston Center has a waiting room, specialty procedure rooms, technical areas, and exam rooms.
The main UHS office is a 51,000 square foot facility located in the Illinois Medical District at Ashland and Polk in Chicago.
Other locations are at 2800 West 87th St. in Chicago, 4701 North Cumberland Ave. in Norridge, 610 South Maple Ave. in Oak Park and 3535 E. New York St. in Aurora.
"This is an exciting milestone in the history of Union Health Service," USA President Leon Wolin said in a statement. "New developments are constantly occurring, allowing us to combine the skills of our staff with strategically located center facilities to provide high quality outpatient medical care. With our electronic medical records system and with the additional space, we now have greater ability to coordinate the care offered by our entire medical team."
