About Loyola

Our distinction as a nationally ranked academic medical center combined with our role as a nonprofit Catholic healthcare provider gives Loyola Medicine a mission unique to the Chicago area. Our doctors belong to the faculty of Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine, which allows them to teach the next generation of physicians and to lead meaningful clinical research. Their expertise is as noted as their compassion. Together with our entire staff, they fulfill our mission to treat the whole person with compassion—to "also treat the human spirit."

Loyola is more than a medical center. We are a medical home that reaches throughout the Chicago area. In addition to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood and Gottlieb Memorial Hospital in Melrose Park, we have health centers at more than 30 locations. Some sites offer a wide range of services in one convenient location, such as Burr Ridge, Homer Glen and Oakbrook Terrace, while others offer the convenience of having your primary care doctor close to home or immediate care nearby when you need it.

Home to centers of excellence

Loyola is home to renowned centers of excellence, including the Cardinal Bernardin Cancer Center, Ronald McDonald Children's Hospital, first-class emergency department and Level I Trauma Center, Burn Center, Stroke Center, Center for Heart & Vascular Medicine and Loyola Outpatient Center with more than 50 specialties and full diagnostic services.


Your place to work and thrive

Loyola Medicine employs thousands of people with the same mission, whether they work in clinical settings or support the health system in other areas: to provide the best care for our patients. Loyola offers a work environment that encourages innovation, embraces diversity, respects life and values human dignity.
