Dispersed throughout Chicago and suburban Cook County, the 16 Ambulatory and Community Health Network (ACHN) coordinates primary and specialty outpatient care in community, and hospital outpatient settings. The network emphasizes primary and preventative care and provides specialty outpatient and diagnostic services for persons of all ages.

ACHN also coordinates care for expectant mothers with other System affiliates to ensure successful deliveries and healthy babies. The services provided at the ambulatory specialty clinics on site at Oak Forest Health Center and Provident Hospital include care for chronic illnesses (such as diabetes, hypertension, and asthma), preventive services (such as immunizations, cervical and breast cancer screening, and obstetrics), and care for urgent medical problems.

Also included under ACHN are the Specialty Clinics at John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital. The Specialty Care Center experiences more that 230,000 patient visits a year and has 50 distinct specialty clinics. Those clinics include Ophthalmology, Dermatology, Urologic Surgery, Orthopedics Cardiology, Oncology, Gastroenterology, General Surgery, We are the tertiary referral site for the safety net in Cook County, and provide essentially all specialty services. Ambulatory and Community Health Network received a 3 year accreditation for Join Commission in 2014.
