Rush University Medical Center (Rush) is an academic health system whose mission is to improve the health of the individuals and diverse communities it serves through the integration of outstanding patient care, education, research and community partnerships. Since 1873, Rush has operated on Chicago's West Side, where many of the surrounding neighborhoods are significantly under resourced and many residents are poor, unemployed, and unhealthy. In 2017, West Side residents, health care institutions, nonprofit organizations, businesses, government agencies, and faith communities came together to create West Side United, an initiative of Rush. The mission of West Side United is to build community health, economic wellness, and vibrant neighborhoods. With this award for place-based community economic development, West Side United, pursues resident-driven, equitable development as it works to mitigate the health and economic impacts of COVID-19 in ten communities on Chicago's west side.
