Child and Family-Centered Design
The hospital’s design incorporated input from the Kids Advisory Board, a panel of
patients who weigh in on a variety of issues that have a direct impact on patient care
and services .
The board brought unique insight and suggestions on everything from layout and
color scheme to new menu and recreation options to create the best experience for
patients of all ages.
Two innovative concepts incorporated as a result of the board’s input include:
 The Crown Sky Garden, a spacious multi-functional gathering place unlike any
other in the hospital. It will be a place of respite where patients, families, staff and
visitors can escape from the confines of the hospital units.
 A salon in the family life center offering massages and hair cuts for patients and
their families. Offering these services will help boost morale and self-esteem,
especially for patients hospitalized for long periods of time.

Innovations in Care
 At 60 beds, Lurie Children’s will offer one of the largest pediatric
intensive care units in the nation. The Regenstein Cardiac Care Unit will
provide intensive care for heart patients of all ages.
 A large clinical research unit with pharmacy, dedicated staff and data
analysis systems will give children the opportunity to receive the most
current therapies.
 Adjacency to Prentice Women’s Hospital will allow faster and safer
transport for newborns who require surgery or specialized care.
 Neurocritical care offers comprehensive interdisciplinary treatment for
children with neurological problems.
 Lurie Children’s includes a green roof, stormwater management system
and the use of low-emission paints and carpets to reduce overall water and
energy usage.

Creative Arts Community Partnerships
We engaged Chicago’s cultural and civic
institutions to assist in the design of public
spaces. This will bring arts and culture
into a world where they can impact the
health and healing of children and
Designed points of interest create an
atmosphere that is welcoming, engaging
and calming, communicating hope and
promoting healing.
Spaces will stimulate learning, encourage
interaction and inspire confidence.
