There are also several free standing clinical sites with plans to expand our “footprint” with continued future development, including South Loop and Oak Brook. Finally, we have recently initiated an Institute for Inflammation, Microbiome and Chronobiology. This is an exciting time at Rush GI and we would like to recruit colleagues that will share our vision and enthusiasm. Rush is an equal opportunity employer.
