Rush University Medical Center

Since 1965 Block Electric has had a long and prosperous history with Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. There have been many projects built since, including the new construction of the Midwest Orthopedics and Atrium buildings.  Our electricians are involved in a wide variety of projects at the hospital. Block Electric has completed the following projects at Rush in 2016.

  • The 500 Club Lighting Project. Rush uses the 500 Club for in-house functions and events.
  • Demolition of the east portion of its campus
  • Updated the HVAC and electrical portions of the 13 Jelke building.

One little known fact is that Block electricians regularly assist in behind the scenes lighting and HVAC work for various TV shows that are filmed at Rush. Most recently, Block worked on “Chicago Med.” In the past, Block has worked on Boss and Shameless.
