October 4, 2019

The Ruth M. Rothstein Core Center recently celebrated 20 years of prevention, care, and research concerning HIV/AIDS and other infectious diseases.

The Core Center began as a partnership between Cook County Health (CCH) and Rush University Medical Center. Since its opening in 1998, the Center has remained one of the largest HIV/AIDS clinics in the United States and treats more than 10,000 patients annually for HIV/AIDS care and other infectious diseases.

“Just 30 years ago, an HIV diagnosis was a death sentence, and today—with immense commitment and breakthroughs, some that Core has been part of—HIV is a completely manageable disease,” said Jay Shannon, CEO, CCH.

The center is located at 2020 W. Harrison St. Call (312) 572-4500.
