For Chicago, before Chicago.
The roots of Rush’s exceptional patient care trace back to March 2, 1837, when Rush Medical College received its charter, two days before the city of Chicago was incorporated. The college was named in honor of Benjamin Rush, MD, the only physician with medical school training to sign the Declaration of Independence.
That sense of independent thinking, freedom to grow, equality and inclusion continues at Rush today. Rush is physician-led with one governing board overseeing all entities. In addition, our community of physicians, advanced practice providers, nurses, researchers, faculty, students and staff includes a high percentage of women and minorities, as well as LGBT and veteran employees, reflecting the diverse Chicago communities we serve. Together, there are more than 700 employed physicians and 300 advanced practice providers at Rush, in more than 111 specialties and subspecialties, singularly focused on transforming health care and providing exceptional patient care.
“At Rush, we take a patient-centered approach to care. Providers from across the continuum develop the best treatment plan for each individual. Our teams include primary care providers, medical oncologists, pathologists, imaging specialists and surgeons — and the patients and their families — all working together to achieve the best health outcomes.”
