Unless you have a gunshot wound or are getting outpatient care in their oncology department, I would strongly recommend you pay the cab fare to go to Northwestern.
My experience in the ER and subsequent unnecessary 72-hour hospitalization for a simple tibia break is inexcusable. The attitude, indifference, arrogance, refusal to return the nurses' pages, and incompetence of the MDs defies all of my previous experiences. Then insult to injury, I was discharged with no more than a recommendation to come in for a "check up" seven weeks later. And, believe me, I know having worked in a variety of medical settings as a speech-language pathologist and having spent the better part of the past three years bouncing around a number of hospitals during the last three years of my father's life.
Needless to say, I spent my second day of unnecessary hospitalization with occasional unnecessary tests being run (in all candor I'm gonna go with they screwed up the charts since I've seen IL Masonic do this repeatedly with my own patients) calling every reputable medical or paraprofessional whom I've known over the last 8 years, as well as my fabulous internist and ob-gyn at Northwestern Memorial Physicians Group. Big surprise, they not only showed up at my beside, but got me into to see a great ortho within two days. Big surprise he was not only competent, but thoughtful, candid, and in his own words blunt.
Enough said, though I've now heard numerous nightmare stories about Illinois Masonic. Just think what it's like for people who don't have a medical background or the time and energy to advocate for themselves and their family members. This is obscene and unconscionable!!!!

I have personally been admitted to their ER 3 times in 34 years (2 previous times as a child, once as an adult). My wife and my son have also been treated in their ER and we have never had any faults with wait time nor treatment. In fact I would place their services on par with any other ER in the city and probably best on the North Side. Other reviewers are responding with visceral emotions most likely tied in with their ailments and posting inappropriate ratings. As I have already stated I have brought my son in for treatment and would do so again in a literal heartbeat.

PROS: One of two trauma units on the North Side of Chicago.
CONS:

I was in the Emergency Room in this hospital one Friday Night and I have to agree with the previous poster that their Emergengy Room is really extremelly slow. What's the point of going to the ER if they cannot handle you within 1 hour. The ER at that time was not that busy, but the staff are just too slow. Maybe because the ER was full of residence with only 1 doctor on duty. I will not go back there for emergency.

I went to the Emergency Room of this hospital twice when I was pregnant with my first. It took them over 1 hour to see me while I was heavily bleeding the 1st time, they took care of me for 3 hours and sent me home. The next weekend I was bleeding again, and the residence pronounced my "miscarriage", she said I was having the end of miscarrying process. They took m to the Ultrasound room to find out my baby was still pretty much alive. After that incident, I run from this hospital and change my primary care to Northwestern faculty Foundation, the took a good care of me and I had a healthy girl from that pregnancy. There will be no turning back to this place.

I was admitted to the emergency room for shoulder x-rays and treatment the day before Thanksgiving and they took care of me. My wait time was under an hour and they took care to make sure I was comfortable before leaving.
