Chicago hospitals are among the most prestigious in the nation. In addition to full-service medical centers, there are hundreds of health care facilities and private doctors’ offices in the city. The medical profession in Chicago employs well over 100,000 full-time personnel who maintain nearly 26,000 beds, 800,000 admissions and over 11 million outpatient visits annually.
The University of Chicago Medical Center
With over 75 years in operation, the University of Chicago Medical Center has managed to be at the vanguard of health industry innovations and treatments for decades. In fact, U.S. News & World Report has even placed the UC Med Center on the Honor Roll of America’s Best Hospitals (the only hospital in the state of Illinois to ever make it onto the list!). The institution has also received Magnet Recognition status by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. The UC Medical Center is proud to be affiliated with 11 Nobel Laureates who received awards in physiology or medicine.
The medical center has recently added the Comer Children’s Hospital to its roster of state-of-the-art facilities. Comer is one of the finest children’s hospitals in the country and the seven-story building features the most advanced technology in existence for the treatment of children’s diseases and ailments.
Northwestern Memorial Hospital
Northwestern Memorial is known throughout the country for its continual modernization of the medical field, not only in healthcare practice, but also in patient service. Northwestern has won numerous accolades for patient care and comfort as well as awards for "Most Wired Hospital" by Hospital & Health Networks and “The Patient Service Excellence Award” from Sodexho. It has been selected as "Most Preferred" hospital in Chicago a dozen times over and has also been repeatedly voted one of the "100 Best Companies for Working Mothers." Adding to its list of honors is the "Governor’s Family Investment Award" and recognition for "Clinical Excellence."
Looking out for its patients may be number one for Northwestern Memorial physicians, surgeons and nurses, but this prominent Midwestern medical center is also highly-praised as one of the principal teaching hospitals in the U.S. Its top-rated academic enrichment programs and pioneering medical procedures have proven time and again that this organization is a vital and important part of the city’s (and country’s) healthcare community
The hospital has a long history of innovation, patient care and academic enrichment and is a significant and necessary part of the Chicago community
