Thirty years ago, Rush employees and patients were moving into a new hospital building, the Atrium. The May/June 1982 issue of the Rush’s NewsRounds newsletter featured a photo spread devoted to the “move-in.”

These photos show everything from the excitement of the dedication ceremonies, the attention given to patients, and the nitty-gritty details like packing up an office.

Rush moves into its new hospital building, the Tower, this weekend. The McCormick Foundation Center for Advanced Emergency Response opens on Friday, and the new hospital officially opens on Monday.
