The McGaw Medical Center of Northwestern University is a consortium of urban, suburban, specialized, and general hospitals and Northwestern University. The member hospitals of the Center, with a total bed capacity of 2,224, are recognized for excellence in providing both high-quality patient care and medical training.
Chartered in 1966 and honoring the generosity of the late Foster G. and Mary McGaw, the center presents a greater range of clinical and research experiences than individual teaching hospitals are able to provide. The various hospitals support both independent and cooperative programs. Almost all members of the medical staffs have faculty appointments at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine and serve as important links between medical education and medical practice.
Members of the McGaw Medical Center include:
- Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine
- Northwestern Memorial Hospital
- Lurie Children's Hospital
- Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago
- Jesse Brown VA Medical Center
- Norwegian American Hospital
The hospitals of the McGaw Medical Center consistently rank among the nation's best by U.S. News and World Report, which in 2007 noted eleven specialties in which the hospitals excelled. Five of these specialties are currently ranked in the top 20 nationally, more than any other hospital system in the state of Illinois.
