About Chicago Health System
Welcome to Chicago Health System is d/b/a for MacNeal Health Providers, Inc. MacNeal Health Providers, Inc. was the legal entity incorporated in November 1985 to set up the infrastructure for an independent network of MacNeal Hospital physicians and other healthcare providers known as MacNeal Health Providers (MHP) to contract with capitated managed care organizations and insurers. With the acquisition of Weiss Memorial Hospital in 2002, the name of MacNeal Health Providers, Inc. was no longer reflective of the broader scope of operations, which also included operation of the Weiss Health Providers (WHP) network. Today, CHS includes over 1000 contracted providers from all four of the Chicago market hospitals; Westlake, West Suburban, MacNeal and Weiss Hospital. Consequently, the legal entity of MacNeal Health Providers, Inc. began doing business as (d/b/a) Chicago Health System, Inc. to manage and operate the networks. In addition, Chicago Health System obtained a Third Party Administrator license in order to provide services to other entities in the management of risk based insurer contracts.
