Career History

Current

Rush is a not-for-profit academic medical center comprising Rush University Medical Center, Rush University, Rush Oak Park Hospital and Rush Health. Renowned Patient Care Rush University Medical Center encompasses a 664-bed hospital serving adults and children, including the Johnston R. Bowman Health Center, which provides medical and rehabilitative care to older adults and people with short- and long-term disabilities. It includes Rush's 376-bed Tower hospital building, which opened in 2012 as part of the Medical Center's major campus renovation. Rush's commitment to sustainability innovation earned the Tower LEED Gold certification. It is the largest new construction health care project in the world to be LEED Gold certified. Rush's renovation also includes Rush's Orthopedic Building, which opened in 2010, and the ongoing campuswide implementation of an electronic medical record system, enhancing patient care and safety. A unique combination of research and patient care has earned Rush national rankings in 11 of 16 specialty areas in U.S. News & World Report's 2012-13 America's Best Hospitals issue, among other recognitions of our quality of care and accreditations. Our nurses are at the forefront of our efforts to provide quality care, receiving Magnet status three times for making outstanding nursing care the standard at the Medical Center. Rush was the first hospital in Illinois serving adults and children to receive Magnet status — the highest honor in nursing — and the first in Illinois to earn a third four-year designation. And some of the world’s best athletes trust themselves to the hands of our physicians. Rush is proud to be the preferred hospital for the Chicago Bulls and home to the team physicians for both the Chicago Bulls and the Chicago White Sox.
