RUSH has opened a new outpatient center in Hinsdale to bring primary and specialty care — including reproductive endocrinology and infertility care — to the village and surrounding communities. The center also offers lab services and dedicated parking.

The new center is located at 32 E. First St. in a 9,900-square-foot center with 17 patient exam rooms. It also is home to RUSH Concierge Medicine, a premier membership-based health care experience. RUSH Concierge Medicine offers personalized, high-touch membership plans that place the patient’s well-being at the forefront.

“At RUSH our goal is to provide care in areas where the care is needed. In opening the Hinsdale center, we are increasing access to patients across the Chicago area,” said Paul Casey, MD, MBA, chief medical officer and senior vice president at RUSH University Medical Center. “RUSH is expanding and enhancing patient access not only through our outpatient locations, but also with several virtual care options.”

The Hinsdale center is near RUSH Oak Brook, which offers more than 25 specialties, an outpatient surgery center and comprehensive on-site imaging services including routine and 3-D mammograms, X-rays, MRI, CT, ultrasound, bone density testing and laboratory services. RUSH programs, including cancer care, are ranked among the best in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.


Qué Miso in Hinsdale has decided to embark on a new chapter and is transforming into Calle Cantina.

The mission at Calle Cantina is simple yet profound: to create a space that is welcoming to all, where every guest feels safe, valued and embraced in an environment where diversity is celebrated and where everyone can come together to enjoy exceptional food, drinks and company.

The restaurant is diving headfirst into the rich tapestry of Mexican cuisine, bringing diners an array of modern Mexican and Latin flavors. Chef Rhea Brown and his talented team have perfected favorites, such as carne asada tacos, 1/2 pollo, crispy rice and more. A new beverage manager will work with owner Collin Ringelstetter-Ennis to elevate the cocktail, beer and wine program.

Updates to the restaurant’s interior make the space feel fresh, vibrant and inviting.


Abigail AuYeung, a Hinsdale Central High School student, placed 49th in the National Academic Quiz Tournaments’ Individual Player National Championship Tournament April 7 in Rosemont.

The competition drew 260 students from 32 states, the District of Columbia and South Korea.

This quiz bowl event is extraordinary in that it is an individual competition, without the support of teammates. Quiz bowl is a competitive, academic, interscholastic activity for teams of students. Quiz bowl teams use buzzers and answer questions about science, math, history, literature, mythology, geography, social science, current events, sports and popular culture. Quiz bowl matches feature a blend of individual competition and team collaboration, since no individual player is likely to be an expert in all subject areas.

The Individual Player National Championship Tournament was first held in 2018.
