New location, new opportunities for care Every aspect of the hospital was designed with kids in mind and would not have been possible without the generous support of more than 250,000 donors. Named for philanthropist Ann Lurie and her late husband, Robert, in recognition of her $100 million gift, the hospital builds on our legacy of excellence with: • 88 beds in all private rooms to help control infection, reduce noise, minimize errors and enhance privacy; 2 they also create an environment proven to speed healing. • rooftop heliport for critically ill and injured children provides faster access to the hospital when A it matters most. • n-room showers, wireless internet access, on demand in-room food service, shared I kitchens, dining and respite spaces for families all promote peaceful, family-centered care. • reative interiors designed in partnership with more than 20 of Chicago’s premier art, C cultural and civic institutions create healing spaces to distract and calm our patients. • sustainable facility that is twice the square footage of our old hospital, but energy costs are A estimated to increase by only 20 percent. • healing environment throughout the building including the Crown Sky Garden. A part of the A “Pebble Project” – a group of 50 hospitals committed to studying innovations in hospital designs and their effect on the healing process. New Services Our new location, just steps from our pediatric training center at the Feinberg School, gives us opportunities for new services, better care and cutting-edge technology. All of the following new programs and services below were made possible by our new facility. Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Clinic The new MDA Clinic complements the Mazza Foundation Neuromuscular Program at Lurie Children’s by providing additional funding for a multidisciplinary clinic that offers family-centered care. MDA helps children who are affected by muscular dystrophy, spinal muscular atrophy, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease and other neuromuscular diseases. mFGR program The Division of Kidney Diseases, in collaboration with the Infusion Center, is now offering patients an accurate measurement of glomerular filtration rate (mGFR) using lohexol clearance. This is a unique test that is proven to be the safest, most accurate way to measure kidney function. The plasma disappearance of Iohexol is safe and is not radioactive, unlike most mGFR tests. Serum levels of Iohexol are easy to measure and therefore circumvent the need for any urine collections, which has been the downfall of other mGFR methodology in pediatrics. This test may be used preventatively to lessen kidney disease progression and rule out any kidney complications. It will benefit hundreds of cystic fibrosis, irritable bowel syndrome and transplant patients, among others. Regenstein Cardiac Care Unit The 36-bed Regenstein Cardiac Care Unit (CCU) occupies the entire 15th floor, where cardiology and cardiovascular surgery patients stay from admission to discharge. It is one of the few pediatric units of its kind in the nation, providing central expertise, technology and comprehensive resources to treat a broad range of complex heart conditions from infancy through young adulthood. The CCU has the most advanced technology available, which will decrease the need for transfers, in a family-focused, healing environment. 1997 • orris Kletzel, MD, MBA, former Head, Division M of Hematology, Oncology and Stem Cell Transplantation, develops an innovative stem1997 • Riccardo A.

Where kids come first Advocacy The leading causes of adverse health and social outcomes to children and youth stem from environmental, behavioral, educational and socioeconomic risk factors. We use a public health model that emphasizes prevention and health promotion in the community and new policies to address these risks. Areas of emphasis include injury prevention, chronic illness, HIV and school health. In the past three years, the hospital’s Injury Prevention and Research Center assessed the quality and safety of every playground in Chicago public parks. In partnership with the Chicago Park District and Friends of the Parks, we are utilizing the results of these assessments to make improvements where deficiencies were found. The Kohl’s Cares for Kids Safety Network funded the study, which was published in Pediatrics. We also advocated for the passage of the Emergency Epinephrine Act to increase access to Epinephrine Auto-Injectors, or EpiPens, in Illinois schools to better protect the rising number of children suffering from deadly food allergies. We are working with Chicago Public Schools to evaluate the implementation and impact of this legislation. Community Benefit Despite severe government funding challenges, Lurie Children’s has remained steadfast in its commitment to partner with the government and others to improve the health and well-being of children locally, nationally and globally. In FY 2012 we invested approximately $118 million in community benefit programs. Medicaid is the single largest insurer of children in our country, and one in three children in Chicago rely upon the service. Lurie Children’s treats more children insured by Medicaid than any other hospital in Illinois. Because more than 50 percent of our inpatients are insured by Medicaid, Lurie Children’s was one of 19 hospitals in Illinois deemed a “safety net hospital” by the state in 2012. Serving Our Communities Our commitment to care for children extends beyond the walls of the hospital. Our Child Health Data Lab analyzes the causes of illness and injury, and we use this data in partnership with government and community leaders to create community-based interventions. Examples include the Consortium to Lower Obesity in Chicago Children (CLOCC), which has become a national model for addressing the obesity epidemic, and Strengthening Chicago’s Youth (SCY), a powerful consortium to combat violence in our city. Patient Satisfaction In FY 2012, Lurie Children’s collected information on the patient experience and how we can continue to improve and offer every patient and family a positive experience. • 85.2% of our inpatient respondents said they would definitely recommend our hospital. • 94% of respondents said the likelihood of recommending the Emergency department was very good/good. • 5% of our outpatient services respondents said the likelihood of recommending our facility 9 was very good/good. • 96.7% of our outpatient surgery respondents said the likelihood of recommending our outpatient center was very good/good. A new organizational structure was created to better integrate patient safety, quality and experience. With our new structure for clinical excellence, this department will work to hardwire the value of continuous improvement into the entire organization.2006 • Sookyong Koh, MD, PhD, identifies 12 genes that are impacted by seizures and affected by environmental enrichment.
