On Saturday, June 9, 2012, Children’s Memorial’s main hospital moved to 225 E Chicago Avenue, and became Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. This new 23-story, state-of-the-art hospital helps further the Hospital’s mission to provide superior care to the region’s most critically ill and injured children. The 228 single patient rooms were developed from a clinical and family perspective; with the layout of each room offering patients and families more space and privacy, including more room for family members to sleep at the bedside.
