Clinical Outcomes

In keeping with our model of care, patients are supported by an interdisciplinary team that includes physicians, nurses, respiratory, occupational, physical and speech therapists, nutritionists, pharmacists and other staff.

RUSH Specialty Hospital is part of Select Medical, one of largest providers of post-acute care in the U.S. Our hospitals promote healing and recovery in a compassionate environment. We accomplish this by applying evidence-based best practices and rigorous protocols that drive clinical excellence. To underscore this commitment, Select Medical formed the Patient Safety and Quality Institute in 2019. The organization monitors, measures and compares quality, safety and outcomes across our nationwide network of 135+ specialty hospitals as well as against national standards.
