The Lurie Children's Difference
Our program is the largest of its kind in Illinois and one of the largest in the nation. The goal of the program is to return children to their homes and keep them as active as possible in family, school and community activities. Families are provided with some home nursing support in order to help them with their child’s care.
Our staff members are experts in mechanical ventilation, understanding technical issues, coordinating the complex process for going home and understanding the needs of families. Our program currently coordinates the care of more than 50 children at home on ventilator support. We manage ventilator care for some of the most complex cases in the greater Chicago metropolitan area.
