Lurie Children's Families & Friends

Lurie Children’s has become a world-class academic medical center in part because of families who support the hospital out of gratitude for a loved one’s care. The support of grateful family members and friends helps ensure that Lurie Children’s is able to provide the best care and an exceptional experience for every child who comes through our doors.

Lurie Children’s Families & Friends provides family members or friends of patients the opportunity to stay connected with the Lurie Children’s community, amplify their important story and give back in a way that is the most meaningful to them.
