									Caring for Chicago’s Community




     2009 ANNUAL REPORT
                         LEADERSHIP MESSAGE




Rush University Medical Center has a single focus: to provide our patients with
the highest quality health care. Each component of our four-part mission —
patient care, research, education and community service — is driven by this
focus. But the true impact of our mission isn’t only visible within the boundaries
of our Medical Center campus. We also see our mission take shape in the
community health clinics, outreach and mentoring programs, and countless other
community-based initiatives led by doctors, nurses, students and others at Rush.


In FY2009, we looked at ways to make even more meaningful improvements
in the health and vitality of the community. This year, we provided more than
$191 million in benefits to our community. Still, we assess the true value of these
services not in dollars, but in their effect on the individuals and families who are
connected to Rush through these programs.


As you page through this report, we hope you will enjoy reading about some
of the many people who bring to life the ideas, programs and research that we
disseminate throughout our neighborhood, our city and beyond. As we plan for
our transformed Rush University Medical Center, extraordinary opportunities are
developing for Rush to play an even more important role in the community.
We will continue to take pride in seizing these opportunities and serving as a
source of health, hope and stability in our West Side community.

        “Through volunteering
        in the Rush Community
     Service Initiatives Program,
     we see many patients who
         desperately need care.
        We students aren’t just
    willing to provide that care —
    we’re hungry for these types
            of experiences.”

      Researchers in the Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center know that making significant
      improvements in a disease as widespread as Alzheimer’s disease requires more than

       care needs of Chicago’s

      cians unified in the understanding that solutions come from the participation of
      large, distinct populations within our communities. That shared commitment to

                  the opportunity to complete a community nursing rotation at Crane or Orr high school,

                  with them about health issues and risk factors. These nursing students’ efforts in areas
                  like obesity prevention, reproductive health and general health education are aimed at
                  keeping teens healthy, minimizing school absences and, ultimately, encouraging good
