Rush University Medical Center and the DuPage Medical
Group have entered into a comprehensive affiliation agreement focused on
expanding the services that are provided to DuPage Medical Group patients.
As part of the affiliation, Rush and DuPage Medical Group will be providing
comprehensive cancer services in DuPage County, Illinois.
Beginning December 2012, services will be provided in a new medical office building located in Lisle, Illinois. Cancer care services will utilize the latest technology and leverage Rush's clinical expertise in treating all types of cancers in a setting more convenient to DuPage Medical Group patients. Rush and DuPage Medical Group physicians will be working side by side on a day-to-day basis.
Beginning in March 2012, select Rush physicians will have office hours at the DuPage Medical Group offices in Lombard and Glen Ellyn.
In addition, Rush is DuPage Medical Group's preferred referral center for patients in need of complex care. This means when DuPage Medical Group physicians feel patients need the highly specialized or intensive treatment offered by an academic medical center, Rush will be a resource to and partner with patients who rely on DuPage Medical Group for the majority of their care. Patients benefit from this arrangement in a number of ways: they will have access to various specialists who are among the best in their fields and who are supported by Rush's investment in new models of care that utilize advanced technology and evidence-based research to support compassionate patient care. Rush opened a new state-of-the art hospital for acute and critical care in January 2012.
We are proud to be DuPage Medical Group's partner and we look forward to serving you and your family in meeting your health care needs.
