About Infant Welfare Society of Chicago
The Infant Welfare Society of Chicago (IWS) is a not-for-profit medical center that was founded in 1911. Its original mission was to distribute pasteurized milk to low-income families in order to reduce high levels of infant mortality endemic to Chicago's immigrant communities in the early 20th century.
Throughout its 104 year history, Infant Welfare has pioneered innovative pediatric care practices in treating Chicago's most vulnerable populations. Since the 1920s, IWS has incorporated child development and behavioral health counseling into its primary care model. Since 1970, it has provided pediatric dentistry services to low-income children; orthodontic care was introduced in 1991 and pediatric optometry in 1995.
Today, the Infant Welfare Society of Chicago is a state-of-the-art, community health center serving more than 11,000 patients annually with a continuum of medical care, dental care, optometry, and behavioral health services.
