The Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital, a new high-tech hospital in Streeterville, received around two hundred of Chicago's youngest patients on Saturday.
Children's Memorial Hospital transported more than 170 hospitalized children by ambulance from the Lincoln Park facility to the Streeterville-based $855 million new hospital.
It was just a three-mile move but for some fragile patients it took around two hours. Some patients were escorted by a team of six, including a surgeon.
Patrick Magoon, Chief executive of Children's Hospital, said the move would ensure that the hospitalized children get the best care possible.
Speaking on the topic, ahead of the move, Magoon said, “When we move perhaps 170 patients, I think we'll all breathe easy … knowing that they'll get the best care possible that we could ever provide to them.”
Before the move, hospital authorities organized meetings with the families of the patients to explain the reasons behind the move and answer any queries.
