Community Advisory Board
As ambassadors for Children's Hospital of Illinois, members of the Community Advisory Board lead, act and advocate for the hospital, sharing its role and mission with their respective communities. They also advise the hospital and make important contributions to its fundraising programs.
Our caring team of nurses, doctors, therapists, social workers, support personnel and child life specialists address the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of the pediatric patient based on these three principles:
- Children are unique and have special needs.
- A child's illness impacts the entire family.
- Childhood illness interferes with normal childhood growth and development.
These principles are guided by the OSF HealthCare Mission, "In the spirit of Christ and the example of Francis of Assisi, the Mission of OSF Healthcare is to serve persons with the greatest care and love in a community that celebrates the gift of life."
