HIV/AIDS Community

Care Network

Founded by Dr. Richard Novak,  this network has been providing high quality medical care for patients with HIV and AIDS since 1989. The network consists of 7 primary care clinic sites funded by the Ryan White Parts A, B, C & D to provide comprehensive medical care and mental health services to about 850 active patients, drawing primarily from 25 Community Areas.



We provide telemedicine HIV and hepatitis C care for inmates in the Illinois Department of Corrections (IDOC). This program continues to transform care provided to IDOC inmates and serves to revolutionize care on a national basis for prison inmates.



We treat the full range of infectious diseases. Our physicians are continuously in contact with local, national, and international public health experts, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta to stay up-to-date and to share information about the latest research and therapies.
