La Rabida Children’s Hospital and Research Center

Board Members conduct a site visit to La Rabida Children’s Hospital and Research Center in order to observe first-hand the results of their pledging the required matching funds for La Rabida to receive a major Kresge capital grant. This funding allows La Rabida to expand its capacity to meet the increasing medical needs of Chicagoland’s chronically ill medically indigent children.
