For Woodstock resident Andrea Peake, having access to the specialists at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago while remaining close to home is, as Peake puts it, huge.
“My son requires very specialized care when it comes to some of his medical conditions.” Peake said. “If my child needs medical attention in an emergency situation, we’re able to get him to Centegra Hospital-Huntley and the hospital there is able to communicate directly with Lurie Children’s specialists downtown.
“My child’s clinical team is able to get medical records, seek clinical diagnosis and provide medical treatment, if necessary. And they all get on the same game plan while he’s here in Huntley. It’s very convenient for me to be here vs. downtown.”
Lurie Children’s, one of the top-ranked pediatric hospitals in the nation, works with Centegra Physician Care family physicians and pediatricians, independent medical staff providers and nursing to be sure children receive the care they need.
Lurie Children’s cardiologists read pediatric heart scans performed at Centegra. If a child needs cardiology care, Centegra will refer the child to a Lurie Children’s pediatric cardiologist.
Additionally, Centegra may refer children diagnosed with concussions to Lurie Children’s concussion program.
When a child needs inpatient care, Lurie Children’s provides pediatric medicine experts close to home at Centegra Hospital-Huntley. The pediatric unit at Centegra Hospital-Huntley is staffed 24/7 by an expert team of Lurie Children’s pediatric hospitalists, specially trained nurses and skilled technicians who have expertise in pediatric medicine.
Pediatric hospitalists are board-certified pediatricians with special training in hospital-based medicine for infants, children and adolescents. They provide and coordinate clinical care and serve as the essential bridge between a hospitalized child and the child’s pediatrician or specialty care physicians.
Additionally, Lurie Children’s has outpatient offices on the Huntley hospital campus in Medical Office Building 1, 10350 Haligus Road, Suite 110. Services offered include:
