The 27th Street Station is a commuter rail station in the Douglas neighborhood of Chicago that serves the Metra Electric Line north to Millennium Station and south to University Park, Blue Island, and South Chicago.
The station was originally built by the Illinois Central Railroad (ICRR). It directly served Michael Reese Hospital until the hospital closed in 2008. In 1972 it was the site of Chicago's worst rail disaster, the Illinois Central commuter rail crash.
