Learn About Us

Amid all the technology and skill that is brought to bear against diseases, disorders and traumas, at Loyola you will find nurses, physicians and other clinical staff whose commitment to treating you first as a person remains intact. This extra measure of compassion is a unique phenomenon and an integral part of the mission of Loyola University Health System. It’s also part of our promise to you: to go beyond the illness to treat your whole person.


Recognized Leader


Loyola University Health System (Loyola) is a nationally recognized leader in providing health care and in conducting groundbreaking research to treat heart disease, cancer, organ transplantation and neurological disorders. Loyola University Medical Center (LUMC) is the core of Loyola and one of the nation’s leading academic medical centers.

Serving the Community


Loyola takes its commitment to the community very seriously. We regularly invest time, energy and finances to benefit the people we serve. In fact, in 2010 alone, we provided more than $12.7 million in charity and unreimbursed care through our charity care policy, research, education and other services to our communities. For Loyola, our community benefit is about providing medical care to those in need, programs that improve overall health education and research. Our community benefit goes far beyond meeting obligations; our commitment is practical, spiritual and financial.
