The Illinois Medical District (“District”) includes 560 acres of medical research facilities, labs, biotech business incubator, raw development area, universities, and more than 40 healthcare related facilities.
The Illinois Medical District Commission (IMDC) is a seven-member body charged with operating, assembling and redeveloping land to enhance the District. Members are appointed by the Governor, Cook County President and Mayor of Chicago.
Created by an act of the Illinois State Legislature in 1941, the Illinois Medical District (IMD) is the largest urban healthcare, educational, research and technology district in the nation.
We are proud of the synergy created between our four major medical hospitals within the District; Rush University Medical Center, University of Illinois Hospital and Health Sciences System, Cook County Bureau of Health Services, and the Jesse Brown VA Medical Center.
