The University of Chicago Medicine has provided comprehensive, innovative medical care to children since its first pediatric facility was opened in 1930.

Thanks to generous gifts by Gary and Frances Comer, a 172-bed acute care facility was founded in 2005, uniting advanced technology with a family-centered, child-friendly philosophy to provide state-of-the-art care in a six-floor, 242,000-square-feet building called the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital.

Comer Children’s is staffed by close to 170 highly trained pediatricians, as well as specially trained nurses and caring support staff, who work together to provide general and specialty medical care for newborns to young adults.

As a center of medical training, the pediatricians of tomorrow — medical students, residents and fellows — also play an important role in caring for children.
