Healthcare

An eminent role in Chicago’s healthcare community for more than 170 years, Rush University Medical Center today is a leader in patient care, education, research and community service with more than 8,000 employees. The nonprofit, academic medical center encompasses a 664-bed hospital, serving adults and children, including the Johnston R. Bowman Health Center, which provides medical and rehabilitative care to older adults and people with short- and long-term disabilities. The university includes one of the premier medical colleges in the Midwest, one of the country’s top-rated nursing colleges, and graduate programs in allied health, health systems management and biomedical research. In addition, the Medical Center conducts more than 70 residency and fellowship programs in medical and surgical specialties and subspecialties.

In January 2012, Rush opened a new 376-bed hospital building, known as the Tower, which received a LEED Gold certification. Rush’s renovation also includes Rush’s Orthopedic Building, which opened in 2010, and the ongoing campus wide implementation of an electronic medical record system, enhancing patient care and safety.

A unique combination of research and patient care has earned Rush national rankings in 10 of 16 specialty areas in U.S.News & World Report’s 2011 America’s Best Hospitals, among other recognitions of our quality of care and accreditations. Our nurses are at the forefront of our efforts to provide quality care, receiving the first Magnet status in Illinois, the highest honor in nursing, three times for making outstanding the standard. Rush is proud to be the preferred hospital and home to the team physicians for both the Chicago Bulls and the Chicago White Sox.

Rush University is home to one of the first medical colleges in the Midwest and one of the nation’s top-ranked nursing colleges, as well as graduate programs in allied health, health systems management and biomedical research. The Medical Center also offers many highly selective residency and fellowship programs in medical and surgical specialties and subspecialties. Rush gives students the opportunity to learn from world-renowned instructors who practice what they teach.

Rush also maintains a strong commitment to the community. Many generously donate their time and skills, including numerous health outreach projects in which Rush collaborates with neighborhood clinics, churches, schools and other organizations to provide health screenings and vital health information for the underserved.

Rush’s education and research endeavors, community service programs and relationships with other hospitals are dedicated to enhancing excellence in patient care for the diverse communities of the Chicago area – now and in the future.
