CHICAGO, Sept. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Children's Memorial Hospital announced today that philanthropist Ann Lurie has pledged $100 million to help fund the new facility planned for Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago. This gift is the largest given by an individual to a children's hospital in the United States.

The $100 million gift, the largest charitable investment received in the hospital's 125-year history, will be used to help create the new hospital in Chicago's Streeterville community and to enhance its pediatric research initiatives.

"This is a historic day for children's health and for the city of Chicago," said J. Christopher Reyes, chairman of the board of directors of Children's Memorial Medical Center.
