Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago Announces $100 Million Gift from Philanthropist Ann Lurie
Date:9/5/2007

w Prentice Women's Hospital in Chicago's Streeterville community. Subject to government approval, groundbreaking is scheduled for the spring of 2008 and the new hospital is scheduled to open in 2012.

Ms. Lurie resides in Chicago where she is president of Lurie Investments, president and treasurer of the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Foundation and president of Africa Infectious Disease Village Clinics, Inc., a U.S.-based charity. Following the death of her husband Robert H. Lurie in 1990, Ms. Lurie devoted herself to raising their six children, while distinguishing herself as a committed and knowledgeable benefactor to a number of important causes in healthcare, education, social services and the arts.

Ms. Lurie, who was once a critical care nurse at Children's Memorial, said that her personal experiences as both an employee and as a parent of six children -- several of whom were treated at Children's Memorial -- influenced her decision to make the gift.

"I hope that this gift will both provide critical funding for the new hospital and serve as an inspiration for others to make a commitment and give as they are able," she added. "Our future depends on our children and the generations of children after them. I feel that we have an obligation to be supportive of advances in pediatric medical care that will ensure the health of those children."

When the new hospital opens in 2012, it will be called Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago in recognition of this gift that truly will make a difference for the children of Chicago, the Midwest and beyond.

Children's Memorial Hospital, Chicago, is recognized as one of the top pediatric hospitals in the country in rankings published in U.S. News & World Report. The American Nurses Credentialing Center recognized Children's Memorial as the first hospital in the state of Illinois -- and the first pediatric hospital in the nation -- to receive its prestigious Nursing Excellence Magnet Award.
