When NNHSC’s Winfield Moody Health Center arrived on the scene in 1966, our mission was clear. A stone’s throw from the opulent Gold Coast and Northwestern Hospital, Cabrini Green and the blocks that surrounded it were a world apart, with little connection to their residential neighbors to the east and even less to the doctors and health services to whom they were connected.

Thirty years later, while the community has changed markedly, not surprisingly, the need remains much the same. Contrary to media reports, as well as popular perception, Cabrini Green has not gone away. Nor have its residents. While long-awaited change has brought new housing to many families and added hundreds of newcomers to the community, thousands of poor individuals and working-poor families remain, as do their health challenges.

As it did thirty years ago, Cabrini Green still has high mortality rates from chronic liver disease, cirrhosis and diabetes mellitus and higher than acceptable levels of lead in children’s blood. Added to these traditional problems are new challenges: high rates of reported cases of HIV/AIDS, sexually-transmitted diseases, hepatitis B, cases of tuberculosis, and of course, a level of youth and family violence that remains a fundamental threat to life itself.

It is this reality that sets the agenda for Winfield Moody, the provision of a full spectrum of health and social health programs to address the needs of a population. From the youth Education Drop-in Center that has become an institution in the community to a fully equipped internal medicine department, from free blood screenings for adults and immunizations for school children to the area’s best pre-natal outreach program, from pregnancy and violence prevention programs in area schools to sophisticated treatment for chronic medical and psychological problems, Winfield Moody has become the diversified one-stop center that the community depends upon for its well-being.

With a new building, state-of-the-art equipment and expert staff that understands health care as a complex set of relationships between ‘body and soul’, Winfield Moody stands as an “anchor” in a sea of change.
