Bowman Health Center and Rush University. Rush University is home to one of the first medical colleges in the Midwest and one of the nation's top-ranked nursing colleges, as well as graduate programs in allied health and basic sciences. Rush brings together patient care and research to address major health problems, including arthritis and orthopedic disorders, cancer, heart disease, mental illness, neurological disorders and diseases associated with aging. Rush is frequently ranked among the best hospitals in the nation by U.S. News & World Report and was recently named one of the nation's top hospitals by the Modern Maturity, a publication of the American Association of Retired People.
