Providing families access to more physicians, pediatric research and integrated care are among the reasons Oak Brook-based Advocate Health Care has united its two flagship pediatric hospitals to form one of the state’s and nation’s largest pediatric health networks.
Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital in Oak Lawn and Advocate Lutheran General Children’s Hospital in Park Ridge are now Advocate Children’s Hospital. The new framework also has a new leader, a new brand and a new structure that promises to make the children’s hospital one of the country’s top destinations for pediatric care.
“By bringing together some of the world’s best pediatric clinicians, technology and services, we are positioning ourselves to not only adapt to the changing health care landscape but also provide more seamless and comprehensive care for our youngest patients,” said Mike Farrell, president, Advocate Children’s Hospital.
Combined the hospital has more than 400 pediatricians and 230 pediatric subspecialists offering a variety of specialized care for children including trauma, neonatology, surgery, hematology/oncology and more.
Farrell says the goal is to give families more options and access to excellent service close to home. “We are changing our structure to better serve our pediatric patients, but our commitment remains the same—ensure the children entrusted to our care receive the best treatment available.”
