Haymarket Center

Haymarket Center

Haymarket Center and Rush began a collaboration in 2010, funded by the Woman’s Board. Medical and nursing students at Rush began a new clinical program in partnership with Haymarket Center, which is a comprehensive alcohol and drug treatment program located on the near Westside of Chicago.

The mission of Haymarket is to aid people with clinical dependency in their recovery by providing a continuum of optimal professional care that is responsive to the identified needs of the community. Rush students, funded by the Woman’s Board run a weekly clinic and have a seven week rotation of nursing students and their faculty on site, which helps to reduce the number of hospital emergency room visits.
