The Smith Lounge is the procedural family waiting room at Rush University Medical Center. Located on the fourth, fifth and seventh floors of the Tower, the Smith Lounge is designed for families of patients undergoing procedures.
We want families to be as comfortable as possible while their loved ones are in procedure. We understand this can be a stressful time, so please let us know if there's anything we can do to assist you during your wait.
By registering with the receptionist in the Smith Lounge, families will ensure that they get the information they need about their loved ones regarding their procedure. The receptionist will provide a pager so that a member of the surgical team can contact families if needed.
To ensure that space is available in the Smith Lounge for other patients' family members, please limit your group to six visitors per patient. Please ask the receptionist if you have any questions about waiting areas.
