Rush University Medical Center has received the 2021 Women’s Choice Award as one of America’s Best Hospitals. The Medical Center was honored based on its outstanding clinical excellence and patient experience.

This year, the Medical Center earned Women’s Choice Awards in the following categories: 

  • Bariatric Surgery
  • Cancer Care
  • Minimally Invasive Surgery
  • Obstetrics
  • Stroke Center

Women’s Choice identifies the nation’s best hospitals based on robust criteria that includes relevant clinical performance, patient satisfaction and appropriate accreditations. To arrive at award determinations, it uses the most recent publicly available information from The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services as well as accreditation information from appropriate sources.

To understand what matters most to women regarding health care choices, Women’s Choice draws on surveys of tens of thousands of women as well as research conducted in partnership with the Wharton School of Business. This research led Women’s Choice to conclude that clinical performance cannot be separated from patient experience.
