Among the many elements that put the patient at the center of their care needs, RUSH Cancer Center provides a private room for patients receiving IV fluids. The security and comfort of these spaces was a priority for the designers of the new building given the time patients often spend there.
The Joan and Paul Rubschlager Building also houses many of RUSH Neurosciences’ top programs, including Neurology and Neurosurgery, Brain Tumors and Epilepsy, Stroke Treatment, and General Neurology. RUSH Gastroenterology, Endoscopy, Nutrition, RUSH Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation, RUSH Plastic Surgery, and RUSH Lung Center are also based in the new building.
Enhanced care delivery emerged from a series of patient focus groups that identified comfort, privacy and infection control as priorities. When the planner approached his project in 2019, optimizing the patient experience was the main driver of the building’s design.
Recognizing that many patients require blood draws and other laboratory tests before an appointment, RUSH placed the lab on the ground floor adjacent to the lobby to be the first stop for patients. The building contains the latest lab technology that allows blood samples to be analyzed quickly on site. This innovation improves patient care by providing accurate and timely information to guide effective treatment decisions and helping clinicians diagnose complex cases.
