History

Since it’s inception in 1987, the Department of Emergency Medicine has provided outstanding acute care to the residents of Cook County. It is now one of the largest and busiest emergency departments in the United States. Board certified emergency medicine faculty supervise all care provided in the emergency department while teaching residents and medical students. Its faculty has admitting privileges to all inpatient services. With state of the art information and radiology systems, we efficiently care for over 127,000 patients annually.
