The Center for Clinical Wellness (CCW) seeks to address three primary goals: 

  1. Creation of a culture of wellness, including programs to address burnout, support resilience, and increase joy in work.
  2. Increased support for mental health, including access to care, reduction in stigma, and strategic partnerships to prevent suicide.
  3. Production of leading research through an emphasis on data and analytics.​


The Center for Clinical Wellness is the first of its kind; each finish, color, and texture was selected with a scientifically proven rationale to improve the well-being of visitors, while creating an optimal healing environment. Made possible by a significant philanthropic gift, the Center’s launch represents a new chapter in well-being for RUSH University System for Health.




We believe wellness is a journey, and while this journey is different for everyone, we can all benefit from a little help along the way.​


The following services are currently available:

  • Coaching: Work with one of our team members to identify and meet your wellness goals.
