Mission

The University of Chicago Medicine is continually advancing medical care and seeking new ways to improve the health of its patients. In fact, nearly eleven Nobel Laureates have been students, faculty or researchers at the Medical Center and have helped shape its mission of bringing medical and scientific discovery to the bedside. This rich history of providing technologically advanced medicine rooted in groundbreaking scientific breakthroughs is at the heart of the Medical Center’s latest clinical endeavor at 150 East Huron.

Modern Medicine

The University of Chicago Medicine provides the region’s highest ranked patient care and now some of our most renowned specialties are available at 150 East Huron. At our new downtown facility many of our best doctors will deliver comprehensive, coordinated medicine that defines the standard of customized, personal preventive care. World-renowned experts in cardiology, endocrinology, rheumatology, nephrology, executive health, pulmonary and sleep medicine work collaboratively to personalize healthcare by ascertaining each patient’s risk factors for disease. After assessment and testing; a clear, concise and personalized plan is created to reduce patient risks through sustainable lifestyle changes. Employing a multidisciplinary approach, the care plan emphasizes all elements of a patient’s life; from genetic/genomic makeup to environmental risk factors; fully tailored to each individual’s unique risk and circumstance. The result is improved prevention, diagnosis and treatment for patients.

This project is a natural outgrowth of the University of Chicago Medical Center’s legacy of driving innovation in medicine through research and education. Our physicians are involved in reaching important scientific discoveries that translate into improved care for patients. They also regard empowering patients through effective communication and education as a critical component of care.
