The Rush Division of Nephrology, newly led by Dr. Haimanot (Monnie) Wasse, consists of nine clinical faculty members (four Rush-employed and five private practice). Together we provide state-of-the-art, collaborative, and patient-centered care to adult patients with kidney disease, hypertension, and fluid and electrolyte abnormalities. This is an exciting time at Rush Nephrology and we would like to recruit colleagues that will share our academic vision and enthusiasm.
The Nephrology Division collaborates closely with other Rush specialists to treat kidney conditions as well as health issues related to kidney disease. Rush has a busy and highly regarded kidney transplant program with 100% one-year survival since 2006. In 2020, the Division is ranked number 1 in Illinois and number 11 in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.
