AMITA Health Care Network (AHCN) is backed by AMITA Health, a joint operating company in Chicago created by Adventist Health Midwest and Alexian Brothers Health System – organizations powered by two of the nation’s largest faith-based health systems, Adventist and Ascension.
Through SafeGuard plans, US Health and Life offers Chicago-area employers the ability to offer affordable, best-in-class healthcare coverage to their employees by giving them access to the AMITA network. With 80% of Chicagoans living within 10 miles of an AHCN provider, employees can find a provider that is convenient for them. AHCN offers advanced care via electronic medical records, a population health tool and mobile apps that let your employees quickly connect with a provider and manage their care.
AHCN includes more than 1,600 physicians in all categories of healthcare, and 9 of Illinois highest-ranked hospitals are in the AMITA health system.

6 acute care hospitals
