About La Rabida Children's Hospital
At La Rabida Children’s Hospital, our mission is simple: we’re dedicated to maintaining and improving the quality of life for each of our patients with complex conditions, disabilities, and chronic illness. The path to completing this mission, however, is often complicated. Our patients regularly require extensive care coordination or assistance in managing lifelong conditions. Fortunately, we’ve got the best team around.
We’ve assembled a care staff of the best, most highly experienced physicians and providers in Chicago. Through our relationships with University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital, Lurie Children’s Hospital and others, we ensure our patients have the gold-standard of healthcare.
Each child and family in our care is assigned a case manager or care coordinator to oversee treatment and provide 24/7 support. Illnesses don’t work 9-to-5, so neither do we.
