The Illinois Medical District (IMD) is a special-use zoning district just west of the central business district of Chicago, Illinois. It consists of 560 acres of medical research facilities, labs, a biotechnology business incubator, a raw development area, universities, and more than 40 health care related facilities. The IMD is the largest urban medical district in the United States.[1]

Governed by seven appointed Commissioners, the District is focused on expanding innovation in healthcare, medical science, information technology, biotechnology, medical devices, clean technology and supportive assisted living. The IMD is the largest urban medical district with the most diverse patient population in the United States. This is due to four major hospitals that anchor the District including the Jesse Brown VA Medical Center, Rush University Medical Center, The John H. Stroger, Jr., Hospital of Cook County, and The University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System[1] Member institutions include:
