Rush gets record grant to treat PTSD in military veterans
from Modern Healthcare
Rush University Medical Center is getting its biggest gift ever — $45 million from the Wounded Warrior Project to fund mental healthcare for military veterans. Two years ago, the charity gave $15 million to the West Side hospital to start outpatient treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder. The new money will expand those efforts. Of the 262 veterans who underwent a three-week Intensive Outpatient Program, more than 60 percent no longer "meet criteria for PTSD," says Dr. Mark Pollack, chair of Rush's psychiatry department.
