Pediatric Medicine in the Chicago Area

Children's Services

Our expertise covers the widest possible range of conditions

The Ronald McDonald® Children’s Hospital of Loyola University Medical Center, established in 1996, is a full-service hospital focused on families. Through general pediatric care and a number of pediatric specialties, our multidisciplinary teams of doctors, nurses and staff are dedicated to helping children lead active, healthy lives.

Services are provided at a 98-bed hospital within a hospital that includes:

  • A 50-bed Level III neonatal intensive care unit
  • A 14-bed pediatric intensive care unit designed with the latest technology and family amenities
  • 34 general pediatric beds
  • A monitored unit for infants and toddlers


The faculty and staff at Loyola University Medical Center have been recognized for their expertise and leadership across the country. U.S. News & World Report ranked us 29th in the nation for cardiology and heart surgery in 2014-2015. Loyola has the only cardiology program in Chicago to be nationally ranked for 12 years in a row.


Three great programs set us apart: Members of our Child Life group help heal a sick child’s spirit and assist in dealing with the stress of hospitalization. The Ronald McDonald House Near Loyola provides housing for families of children undergoing treatment for long-term illnesses. The Neonate Integrated Home Care Program has helped transition more than 1,500 neonates from the hospital to home since it began.
