Welcome Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago

On Saturday, June 9, 2012, the Lurie Cancer Center will welcome our academic partner, the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago (formerly Children's Memorial Hospital), when it opens the doors to its new, world-class hospital at 225 E. Chicago Ave.

Named in recognition of Ann Lurie's historic $100 million transformational gift, the 23 story facility, widely recognized as the world's tallest pediatric hospital, will offer innovations in medical care and technology, enhanced clinical programs, advanced research and improved family amenities. The new location on the campus of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine will enable the hospital to recruit top pediatric specialists, and its close proximity to Prentice Women's Hospital will expedite the care of critically ill newborns.

"One of the unique things about our model of care is that we work very closely with the Lurie Cancer Center," says Advanced Practice Nurse Karina Danner-Koptik, RN, MSN, APN, CPON. "That will give us even more opportunities to work collaboratively with their researchers as well as the adult clinicians at Northwestern. This means better
treatments and targeted research, a smoother transition into adult care, and ultimately, the most expert treatment options and cures for our patients."

Watch "Transforming Pediatric Cancer Care" for a preview of Lurie Children's led by Morris Kletzel, MD, Professor of Pediatrics at Feinberg, Head of the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children's Memorial Hospital, and member of the Lurie Cancer Center.
