Quality Outcomes at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago

When you're looking for a rehabilitation facility for yourself or someone you love, you want the highest quality care in a setting where you feel secure, supported and acknowledged. You also want a place with a proven record of success, a teamwork approach to patient care and the most innovative technologies available anywhere.

Those quality outcomes are exactly what we offer and that's why The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) has been recognized as the "#1 Rehabilitation Hospital in America" since 1991 by U.S. News & World Report. No other specialty hospital has been consecutively ranked #1 by U.S.News for so long.

RIC treats more than 20,000 patients per year — among the most in the nation. We offer our patients the nation's most innovative treatments and sophisticated technologies. In fact, we have the world's largest rehabilitation research center and are the only one with seven research designations from U.S. government agencies, including the Department of Defense, to develop breakthrough treatments.

To make sure we consistently provide quality care, we ask our patients, and more than 96% gave us the highest marks on satisfaction with their overall care and their physicians, therapists and nurses. Another 95% report we do a great job of communication. As a further validation of our quality care, RIC was granted Magnet Recognition by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) for excellence in nursing services, making us the first freestanding rehabilitation hospital in the nation to receive two consecutive Magnet Recognition designations.
