Every hospital has stories.  

These are a few of ours.

In hospitals, we’re surrounded by stories. Some are incredible. Some are touching and heartfelt. All of them are nice to hear. We recognize that we can talk on and on about the distinctions we’ve been awarded, the services we offer, and the experience of the physicians working in our halls. But only by hearing the stories of those just like you, folks who arrived at our doors anxious or scared and went home healed, can you truly begin to understand who we are, and what we strive for.

You’ll find a number of stories we’ve collected about our hospitals. We’ll be adding more regularly so check back often. Take a read and decide if North Shore Medical Center seems like the place for your care, your loved one, or your career.
