Whenever your child needs quality pediatric care, you can be confident with the pediatric expertise and resources of Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital. Through a unique partnership with Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago we provide a broad range of pediatric specialty services for infants, children and teens. The pediatric specialists from Lurie Children's are onsite 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. 

Lurie Children's Pediatric Hospitalists are board certified in pediatrics with extended training in the management of neonatal and pediatric inpatients. The pediatric hospitalists at Northwestern Lake Forest assist the patient’s primary care physician by providing consultation during admission and throughout the patient’s entire hospitalization. They are also available to attend high-risk deliveries, provide ongoing care for the neonate in the Level II+ Special Care Nursery, as well as consult on pediatric cases in the Emergency Department.

Our pediatric hospitalists are backed by the world-class pediatric expertise of Lurie Children's, which is recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the top pediatric hospitals in the country.

Parents: To be prepared in the event that your child may need to go to the Emergency Department before you can arrive, complete this Parental Consent: Emergency Release form and leave it where it can be found easily by a teacher, neighbor or babysitter.
