(Oct. 30, 2017) Rush Specialty Care is now open at Rush Oak Park Hospital, bringing multiple specialties together in one practice to provide more coordinated care for patients.
The following services are now being offered on the fifth floor of the Medical Office Building, 610 S. Maple Ave. on the Rush Oak Park Hospital campus.
- Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
- Sleep Medicine
- Thoracic Surgery
- Dermatology, Gynecologic Oncology, and Plastic Surgery is expected to be added to the practice soon.
In addition to consults with providers, the specialties offer the following services:
- Point of Care Testing
- Breath Tests
- Allergy Testing including oral challenges, skin tests, and patch tests
- Light Therapy, Mohs Procedure, Colposcopies, and Blood Draws are coming soon.
The specialties are housed in a new clinic that was designed with features intended to make it easier for patients to communicate with their providers, leading to better health outcomes. For example, the practice has an on stage/off stage layout, where exam rooms have two entrances, one from the hallway for patients, and one from a work area for providers and staff. This model allows providers and staff to collaborate more easily, while protecting patient privacy.
Other Rush University Medical Group (RUMG) services also are offered in the building, including an expanded Cancer Center Infusion Center, where infusion services for gastroenterology and rheumatology patients also will be provided. An Otolaryngology practice remains on the third floor of the building in an expanded location. There is also a RUMG Primary Care practice on the fifth floor.
