Lurie Children’s and Rush University System for Health Announce Affiliation to Advance Pediatric Care

Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago and Rush University System for Health announce a new affiliation that will improve access to high-quality and complex pediatric care.

The two health care providers — both recognized for quality, safety and excellence in pediatrics — have entered into a clinical affiliation for the advancement of pediatric care across Chicago.

“Together, our two institutions will increase access to high-quality and complex pediatric care,” says Tom Shanley, MD, President and CEO of Lurie Children’s. “We will also amplify the pursuit of research, education and advocacy to advance pediatric academic medicine.”

“Through this new affiliation, we will be able to treat more patients and pool our expertise to provide the best outcomes for the sickest patients,” says Ranga Krishnan, CEO of the Rush System. “We are committed to continuing to pursue innovative, groundbreaking research; providing the best education to the next generation of pediatric providers; and advocating for our patients and communities around larger social determinants of health and equity issues.”

At its core, the agreement will enable clinical providers to deliver the right care, in the right place, at the right time for children throughout the Chicago area. This affiliation represents an unprecedented opportunity to develop new collaborations and share expertise that will benefit the children and families we serve.
