Rush University System for Health has a long history with roots that began more than 180 years ago. Today, we have re-established the Rush name to refer to all of our entities.
The Rush System provides a single brand of health care, with hospitals in Aurora (Rush Copley Medical Center), Chicago (Rush University Medical Center), Oak Park (Rush Oak Park Hospital) and more than 30 clinical locations across the Chicago area.
Our mission, vision and values convey the philosophy behind every decision Rush System employees make.
The mission of Rush is to improve the health of the individuals and diverse communities we serve through the integration of outstanding patient care, education, research and community partnerships.
Rush will be the leading academic health system in the region and nationally recognized for transforming health care.
Rush's core values — innovation, collaboration, accountability, respect and excellence — are the roadmap to our mission and vision.
These five values, known as our I CARE values, convey the philosophy behind every decision Rush employees make. Rush employees also commit themselves to executing these values with compassion. This translates into a dedication — shared by all members of the Rush community — to providing the highest quality patient care.
