Opened in 1907 by the Sisters of Misericordia, Rush Oak Park Hospital was the first hospital in the area. Today it is firmly rooted in history and invested in the future.

Rush Oak Park Hospital has received even more recognition as a center for excellence since its affiliation with the Rush System for Health. In 1997 Rush University Medical Center assumed full management of hospital operations, bringing its renowned services, programs and physicians to Rush Oak Park Hospital.

Rush Oak Park Hospital also is affiliated with Wheaton Franciscan Services, Inc. As an affiliate of this Catholic housing and healthcare ministry, Rush Oak Park Hospital is committed to a healing ministry by providing exceptional and compassionate health care service that promotes the dignity and well-being of the people it serves.

The Rush Oak Park Hospital campus includes the Center for Rehabilitation, one of the few acute rehab centers in the area, managed by Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital; the Breast Center; state-of-the-art Interventional Radiology and Surgical suites; and a comprehensive Center for Diabetes and Endocrine Care with an American Diabetes Association-Recognized Education Program and board-certified endocrinologists.

Rush Oak Park Hospital houses a comprehensive Emergency Department, staffed with a board-certified physician 24 hours a day. The mission of the Department is to provide exceptional quality of care with the shortest possible waiting times.

The campus also is home to the 135,000 square-foot Rush Medical Office Building, which houses an advanced MRI operated in cooperation with Oak Park Imaging Services, LLC; the Rush Pain Management Center; the Rush Outpatient Pharmacy; and about 30 medical offices. Off-campus, the Rush Oak Park Physicians' Group has practices in Oak Park, Hillside, Elmwood Park and North Riverside.
