Rush University Medical Center celebrates 175th anniversary

Event: 175th Birthday Party, Rush University Medical Center

The Rush Archives invites you to a special birthday event celebrating 175 years of Rush. Join us for lunch and dessert and learn about Rush’s fascinating history.

Rush Medical College's first building, 1844
Rush University Medical Center’s oldest component, Rush Medical College, was chartered March 2, 1837 … two days before the city of Chicago received its charter. That makes us older than Chicago!

Join us for Rush’s 175th Birthday Party
Armour Academic Center, Room 994 
600 S Paulina St, Chicago, IL
Friday, March 2, 12 p.m. – 1 p.m.

Featuring remarks by Thomas A. Deutsch, MD, Dean of Rush Medical College and Provost, Rush University, and a special performance by members of the Rush Choir. Pizza and cake will be served.
