The Formula Lab at Lurie Children’s, located at the main hospital, prepares specialty formulas for infants, children and adolescents admitted to the hospital.
A stand-alone Formula Lab is a service unique to specialty pediatric hospitals and allows for a safe environment for the preparation of formulas by specially-trained nutrition technicians.
The Formula Lab prepares formula for approximately 50% of admitted patients who are fully dependent on formula taken either orally or via tube feeding, or patients who require formula for supplementation to an oral diet.

- Ready-to-feed (liquid) formulas
