ABOUT AUTOPSY CENTER OF CHICAGO

The Autopsy Center provides compassionate, comprehensive, caring private autopsy service for families in bereavement. We are an independent, confidential service.

Casework is meticulous and interactions with families are warm and emotionally available. We work to transform the confusing into the clear; the uncertain into the manageable; the unknown into the known.

The need for closure after a loss is powerful; and you have the right to ask questions. Talk to us about how we can help.
