Kwame Raoul is recognized for health work

State Sen. Kwame Raoul (D-13) has been named Humanitarian of the Year by Jackson Park Hospital, just south of Hyde Park on Stony Island Avenue.

Raoul said he was “humbled to receive this award” in a statement in which he also described Jackson Park as a safety net hospital, which provides needed services to low-income residents, and mentioned that the hospital recently opened a new obstetrics unit.
