Biographical/Historical Note +/-

The Suburban Cook County-DuPage County Health Systems Agency was founded in 1976 as a result of the National Health Planning and Resources Development Act (Public Law 93-641) and was funded primarily by the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare. The 1974 congressional act, in response to concerns over inefficiencies and rising costs in the health care system, established a network of health systems agencies (HSAs) that functioned to identify and prioritize regional healthcare needs to systemize healthcare planning. The organization, which changed its name to the Suburban Health Planning Association around 1987 after it was no longer primarily a government agency, served as the HSA for suburban Cook and DuPage counties in Illinois. Like other HSAs nationwide, the agency developed health systems plans and an annual implementation plan, which were submitted to the state for consideration. The agency also reviewed projects related to the expansion and modernization of healthcare facilities and services based on need, efficiency, and appropriateness. The agency dissolved in 1989.
