The University of Chicago Medicine has been at the forefront of medical care since 1927. Located on Chicago's South Side, the medical campus includes Comer Children's Hospital, Bernard A. Mitchell Hospital for adult inpatient care, Chicago Lying-In Hospital, the Duchossois Center for Advanced Medicine, and the new Center for Care and Discovery.

At the University of Chicago Medicine, providing highly effective, safe patient care is central to everything we do. We strive to provide excellent clinical care in a comfortable, safe environment in which patients and their families are treated with dignity and respect.

Here, teams of experts work together to ensure that we follow the highest standards for quality care—from preventing infections and continuously improving surgical care, to achieving high success rates and patient volumes for even the most complex procedures. 

We collect and report hundreds of quality measures, and use this information to measure progress and set goals for even better care.
