Family Services

A child's illness can take a toll on a family, especially when caregivers must miss work to be at the beside, arrange care for siblings, and manage the expense of traveling to the hospital daily. Lurie Children's provides more care to kids insured by Medicaid than any other hospital in Illinois. You can provide essential resources needed to support families facing financial hardship as a result of their child's illness.

Hippo Snug Seat
When a child is in a body cast or attached to medical equipment, parents are unable to use most infant or child car seats to get their child home safely. Specially-designed car seats provided through the Pedersen Family Learning Center make it possible for parents to safely transport their child home from the hospital, to follow-up appointments and for use in daily life.
