The northwest side of Chicago isn't the city, as you'd imagine it to be. We have open space, parks, forest preserves, quiet tree-lined residential neighborhoods and small-town stores and restaurants. We're a few blocks from a major expressway (I-90), a few miles from one of the world's busiest airports (O’Hare), and a few more miles from one of the world's largest lakes -- Lake Michigan (offering the diversions of the seashore, but with smaller, sodium-free waves).
As the resources of the city are abundant, so too, are the resources of our neighborhood community hospital. We have 434 inpatient beds, averaging more than 18,000 admissions annually; servicing over 40,000 emergency department patients in 2006. What does this mean for you? It means you'll be in the heart of an active, thriving health care environment central to the lives of so many Chicagoans. You'll be confronted with a plethora of experiences, individuals, medical professionals, procedures and technologies.
And remember, service is our tradition. We were founded by the Sisters of the Resurrection in 1953 and later joined in a co-sponsorship with the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth and remain committed to quality service. As we actively strive to meet and improve upon the needs of our community, we remain equally dedicated to our residents’ needs. In addition to Presence Resurrection Medical Center's Family Medicine and Emergency Medicine residency programs, residents from affiliated programs serve rotations in Surgery, Internal Medicine, OB/Gyn and Radiology. We have affiliations with Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine, the University of Illinois, and the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine. Students from all major Chicago medical schools may elect rotations at Presence Resurrection Medical Center.
