Rush University System for Health brings together the brightest minds in medicine, research and academics.

Driven by discovery, innovation and a deep responsibility for the health of our communities, Rush is a national leader in outstanding patient care, education, research, community partnerships and empowering a new generation of health care providers.

Rush comprises Rush University Medical Center, Rush Copley Medical Center, Rush Oak Park Hospital and Rush University, as well as an extensive providers network and numerous outpatient care facilities.

Rush University Medical Center

Rush University Medical Center is an academic medical center that includes a 671-bed hospital serving adults and children, the 61-bed Johnston R. Bowman Health Center and Rush University. For more than 170 years, the Medical Center has been leading the way in developing innovative and often life-saving treatments.

Today, Rush is a thriving center for basic and clinical research, with physicians and scientists involved in hundreds of research projects developing and testing the effectiveness and safety of new therapies and medical devices. The Medical Center also offers more than 70 highly selective residency and fellowship programs in medical and surgical specialties and subspecialties.

In addition to its mission in patient care, education and research, the Medical Center maintains a strong commitment to the community. Rush reaches out to the Chicago community through offerings such as the Rush Community Services Initiatives Program, an umbrella for several student-led outreach programs designed to address the social and health care needs of residents in neighboring communities.

Rush Copley Medical Center

At Rush Copley Medical Center, patients experience a unique blend of leading-edge medicine and the heartfelt compassion of dedicated professionals in a community hospital setting.

Meeting the health care needs of a growing and diverse community, we offer advanced care in heart and vascular, cancer, women’s health, emergency services, orthopaedics and neuroscience. Safe, quality care is our focus, and nearly all of our outcomes often exceed national standards.

Rush Copley is widely considered one of the most impressive health care facilities in the Midwest. A ranch-style, two-story building with convenient patient care entrances, our hospital is situated on 98 acres of beautiful landscape, offering spectacular views from patient rooms, all of which are private. The hospital's many courtyards give visitors and patients a soothing respite amid natural settings.

Rush Oak Park Hospital

Rush Oak Park Hospital has provided exceptional health care in Chicago's western suburbs for more than a century. As a partner with Rush University Medical Center, we combine the convenience and personal touch of a community hospital with the technology and expertise of one of the nation's top academic health centers.

Clinical strengths at ROPH include a broad range of quality services, including cancer care, cardiology, diabetes and endocrine care, and breast imaging. 

Our campus is also home to the 135,000-square-foot Rush Medical Office Building, which houses approximately 30 medical offices, including Rush primary physicians and specialists. 

In September of 2019, Rush Oak Park Hospital opened a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified, state-of-the-art emergency department fully equipped with the latest in medical technological advances.  

We are proud of the numerous patient care excellence and safety awards we’ve received over the years, including being recognized as top in quality and patient experience from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. We also hold Magnet designation, the most prestigious honor a health care organization can achieve for nursing excellence and quality patient care.
