HIV Care

The Care Program provides integrated services for patients on Chicago’s South Side.

The Michael Reese Care Program is a recognized leader in integrated primary and multi-specialty care for people living with HIV disease and hepatitis. This twice-weekly clinic provides a seamless system of care to over 400 patients both with and without insurance, from Chicago’s south side and the entire metropolitan area.

The Care Program has provided expert, comprehensive HIV care to Chicago’s Southside community for over 30 years. The Program was started by the residents of Michael Reese Hospital as a free community clinic to serve low-income persons living with HIV. The Care Program actively continues the mission of Michael Reese in serving the underserved, and when the hospital closed, relocated to Mercy Hospital and now UI Health, renewing our commitment to serve our highly-impacted community.

Our program provides culturally-proficient, comprehensive HIV care, integrating primary health care and other wrap-around services for persons living with HIV. We accept most types of insurance, including Medicaid and also serve the uninsured. All services are provided regardless of ability to pay and at low or no cost to uninsured patients.

Nip smoking in the butt. Quitting is hard, but with your healthcare team by your side, you don’t have to do it alone.

You and only you get to decide how to express your identity. We are experts in helping people meet their goals using hormone therapy and other modalities.

We’re not just on the case. We’re by your side. Case management can be critical in the effort to live well with HIV.

Insurance Enrollment Assistance

We actively assist in enrolling patients in the insurance marketplace.


“Love first, ask later.”

Dr. Moswin has over 25 years of experience focusing on the primary medical care of people living with HIV and management of patients with multiple complex medical and social issues.  In 2013 he was awarded a Gold Service Award on National Long Term Survivor Day by the Chicago Department of Health.

For more than two decades, Ms Rolfsen has devoted her nursing practice to people living with HIV. In 2013, she received the American Red Cross Nurse Award. With the belief “Love first, ask later,” Ms Rolfsen is a driving force behind the development of compassionate, non-judgmental care – for HIV and all patients.

The entire staff is extensively trained in cultural competency in LGBT and other population-specific issues. Many practices developed at the clinic for aging patients have become “best practices” adopted by similar centers. The clinic is a training site for providers to learn HIV care and has helped other clinics set up similar programs.
