About Us

The University of Chicago Medical Center (UCMC) brings together outstanding clinical facilities of the University of Chicago Medicine with the education and research facilities of the Pritzker School of Medicine and the Biological Sciences Division of the University of Chicago. The UCMC resides entirely on the 190 acre University of Chicago campus approximately seven miles south of Chicago’s business district. We recently expanded our facilities with the opening of the new Jules and Gwen Knapp Center for Biomedical Discovery and the Center for Care and Discovery, the largest facility on the medical campus.

Annually named to the US News & World Report list of the best hospitals in the USA, the clinical facilities at the University of Chicago currently includes Mitchell Hospital, a 395-bed adult hospital facility, Comer Children’s Hospital with 155 beds, and the Duchossois Center for Advanced Medicine, a 525,000 square foot outpatient clinic and surgery facility. In addition, a 1.2 million square foot new hospital, the Center for Care and Discovery, opened in February 2013. The Department of Radiology operates facilities in all of these locations to provide multidisciplinary care and education.
