Pediatric Care Partners
Centegra, Lurie Children’s to partner to provide pediatric care at Centegra Hospital-Huntley.
Centegra Health System announced it will partner with Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago to provide 24-hour pediatric hospitalist coverage at Centegra Hospital-Huntley when it opens this summer.
Board-certified pediatricians will be in the hospital 24/7 to care for inpatients, coordinate patient care with each child’s primary care physician and be available to assist with pediatric emergencies in the emergency room.
“By partnering with Lurie Children’s, our patients have access to the best inpatient and specialist care.”

“Children should have access to the best pediatric care without having to leave their community,” explained Michael S. Eesley, CEO of Centegra. “Our partnership with Lurie Children’s brings expert care to Centegra Hospital-Huntley so children and families can get the care they need close to home.”
In addition to inpatient services, Lurie Children’s and Centegra will immediately begin to collaborate to provide a higher level of cardiology and concussion care. Beginning this fall, Lurie Children’s cardiologists will see patients at Centegra Health Center-Huntley, which will provide children access to a higher level of care right in their community.
“Centegra understands that children aren’t just small adults and that they are still growing,” Eesley said. “We want our youngest patients to have streamlined access to medical specialists when our own pediatric experts believe they would benefit from additional care. By partnering with Lurie Children’s, our patients have access to the best inpatient and specialist care.”
