Rush Medical Center is consistently one of the nation’s top-ranking hospitals of the U.S. News & World Report in numerous medical specialties including nursing, orthopedics, neurology and cancer treatment. The not-for-profit academic medical center is a 664-bed hospital, which serves as part of a larger network of health care facilities including Rush University, Rush Oak Park Hospital and Rush Health.
The Rush network has been a part of Chicago’s history longer than any other health care institution citywide. Rush Medical College opened as the first medical school in Chicago and established Presbyterian Hospital, a teaching hospital. Years later, the hospital would merge with St. Luke’s Hospital and eventually be renamed as Rush University Medical Center in 2003.
In recent months, the hospital has launched a number of initiatives to improve cancer patient care including the first and only trial of a new drug for brain tumors, patient cancer conference collaborations and the launch of our center Rush Radiosurgery to offer a noninvasive treatment option for tumors throughout the body.
We are honored to be affiliated with such a prestigious network of healthcare professionals. To learn more about Rush University Medical Center, visit their website.
