Beneficiary - Alivio Medical Center
The Alivio Medical Center, located in the heart of the Pilsen community at 2355 South Western Avenue, was built specifically to address the health care needs of the uninsured and working poor. In 1999, the medical center opened a second facility at 966 W. 21st Street to increase service to the continuously growing Hispanic community. Alivio serves the Pilsen area as well as the surrounding communities of Little Village, Back of the Yards, Bridgeport, McKinley Park, Amrour Square, Archer Heights and Heart of Chicago. 87 percent of the patients cared for by Alivio are under the 200 percent federal poverty level.
