The Chicago Democrat says the hospitals in Cook County serve some of the state's neediest residents.

He says the grants will create construction jobs and help the hospitals better serve patients they treat each day.

The grants are part of the Illinois Jobs Now capital construction program.

They include $3.5 million for Mercy Hospital to renovate its patient tower. Other hospitals will use the funds to upgrade equipment and technology and renovate buildings.
