At La Rabida Children’s Hospital, our patients aren’t like any other — and neither are we. The children we serve live with complex medical conditions, disabilities, abuse or trauma. At La Rabida, we’re in it for the long haul, and we’ve got Chicago’s most talented providers — pediatricians, nurses, physical, occupational, speech and developmental therapists — on our side.
We have more than 100 years of experience treating children and helping them reach their fullest potential. Each year, we help more than 9,000 children, serving each one with empathy, compassion and the highest quality of care.
We offer an integrated approach to healthcare, caring for the patient while also supporting the family. Children with complex medical conditions often need specific skills from caregivers. Proper training of parents to care for a child at home is one of our keys to success. We make sure parents feel confident and secure bringing their child home.
Between our outpatient and inpatient services, we are able to cover a range of disciplines beyond standard medical care: behavioral therapies, case management, social work, nutrition and rehabilitation services.
