About Rush University Medical Center Emergency Department - Chicago

  • Fast, expert care: Our expert ED doctors and nurses are experienced in treating all types of life-threatening illnesses and injuries in adults, children and infants. Rush has been recognized nationally for stroke and heart care, in part for our ability to administer life-saving treatments for these conditions.
  • Private treatment rooms: Open 24/7, our center has 60 large treatment rooms with sliding glass doors to give you privacy.
  • State-of-the-art infection control: Our ED was specially built to handle pandemics like COVID-19, as well as other large-scale emergencies. For instance, airflow can be controlled to help prevent the spread of infectious agents.
  • Virtual and walk-in care for non-emergencies: If your medical problem is not an emergency, then you can get help via a digital visit.
