Located in historic Hyde Park on the South Side of Chicago, the medical campus includes Comer Children’s Hospital, the Center for Care and Discovery, Bernard A. Mitchell Hospital, Chicago Lying-in Hospital, and the Duchossois Center for Advanced Medicine. The University of Chicago Medicine also has outpatient locations throughout the Chicago area.
