The Only Teaching Hospital in Southland

America’s teaching hospitals are the training ground for more than 100,000 new physicians and related health pro-fessionals each year. Of America’s 6,003 hospitals, only 400 are academic centers. Of the 59 teaching hospitals in Illinois, only one – Franciscan Health – provides care to people living in Chicago’s Southland. 

Under the supervision of highly skilled attending physicians at Franciscan Health Olympia Fields, residents who study at Midwestern University fulfill roles that expand and enhance the hospital’s ability to deliver quality care to all members of the community.

Academic health centers provide a host of unique advantages, including:

  • Improved quality of care
  • Superior outcomes
  • Shorter LOS for major illnesses
