Welcome to the Emergency Department
The doctors and nurses in Rush North Shore's Emergency Department are there when you need them.
Our recently renovated $9 million, state-of-the-art Emergency Department is equipped with 17 glass-enclosed private rooms with bedside registration. This new registration system makes the triage process more efficient and a prompt minor care system is poised to reduce long waits for those with less urgent needs.
Because Rush North Shore maintains a Level II Trauma Center, we are able to initiate care for all injured adults and children. This means we offer 24-hour immediate coverage by general surgeons and specialists in emergency medicine, orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery, anesthesiology, radiology and critical care. Laboratory and radiology services are also available 24/7.
Our Emergency Department has been named as an "Emergency Department Approved for Pediatrics" (EDAP) by the State of Illinois. This designation confirms that we are trained and equipped to care for children of all ages. Members of our nursing staff are also trained and certified in Pediatric Advanced Life Support and offer you the highest level of efficient, yet compassionate, care.
If you have any questions about our services, please call the Emergency Department at 847/933-6950.
