In March 2014 Rush in Obstetrics and Gynecology opened a new Rush Family Birth Center which is designed with four key care concepts - to provide adjacency, privacy, family space and mother baby bonding. The new center has large, individual rooms to keep moms, babies and families together throughout their journey. Rush is one of the few hospitals in Illinois with labor and delivery services (which includes operating rooms) right next to the NICU and our team of specialists, so when newborn babies are in crisis and seconds count, they can get the care they need.
