The Feinberg School of Medicine and Northwestern Memorial Hospital have teamed up with the Chicago Cubs to showcase the new Northwestern Medicine™ brand throughout historic Wrigley Field. As part of this important sponsorship, there is highly visible signage near the visitors’ on-deck circle, as well as on the new Chicago Cubs Wall of Fame in the concourse, and the logo is emblazoned on dozens of hand sanitizers all over the park. Northwestern Medicine is the name attached to our collaborative strategic plan to transform health care and be among the nation’s top-tier academic medical centers.
