The University of Chicago Medicine is building upon its strengths to continue on the path of being at the forefront of health, discovery and innovation. In recent years, UChicago Medicine has received numerous accolades for its commitment to safety and quality and to improving our patients' experience. These include achieving Magnet designation for excellence in patient care and being among an elite group of providers to receive consecutive “A” grades in hospital safety from industry watchdog Leapfrog Group. We also have been recognized for increasing community access to our care by opening a larger ED in late 2017 and launching adult trauma care in 2018. Our Vision 2025 plan positions UChicago Medicine for continued success in these and other areas.
