Lurie Children’s opens new 44-bed unit for cardiac care

Due to increased demand for pediatric services, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago opens the new 44-bed state-of-the-art Regenstein Cardiac Care Unit (CCU) on June 9, 2018, exactly six years after moving to its downtown facility. The new unit on the 22nd floor is a major milestone in the hospital’s inpatient expansion project that will add 48 beds for intensive care and 24 beds for cancer and blood disorders in 2019, bringing the total number of beds Lurie Children’s operates from 288 to 360. This expansion comes as Illinois hospitals have eliminated over 170 pediatric beds since 2012.
