About Rush University

Rush University Medical Center, located in downtown Chicago, is a nationally recognized leader in academic medicine with nearly 1,000 physicians and scientists on its medical staff. Rush has been leading the way in academic medicine for over 170 years, through the development of innovative and often life-saving treatments.

We are currently in the middle of a 10-year project that will transform our campus and the way we provide medical care. Called the Rush Transformation, it includes new and renovated buildings designed to better support patient needs. In addition, advanced information systems have been implemented to improve the quality, safety, and efficiency of patient care. With these advancements, Rush continues to not only provide state-of-the-art technologies and facilities, but also to attract first-class physicians and scientists from around the globe.

As we continue to grow, we invite you to learn more about why Rush is one of the premiere centers for healthcare in Chicago and the Midwest, and why Rush may be right for you:
