The University of Illinois Hospital Craniofacial Center is one of the oldest and largest facilities in the world, dedicated to the evaluation and treatment of infants, children, adolescents, and adults with cleft lip and palate and other congenital craniofacial conditions. The UI Hospital Craniofacial Center also provides rehabilitative care for patients with head and neck cancer and facial injuries. Our goal is to provide functional, cosmetic, and psychosocial normalcy through a comprehensive team approach of patient care. We strive to improve the quality of life for each of its patients.
The University of Illinois Cancer Center is a science-first research institution that gives every patient with cancer equal access to world-class treatment. More than 230 Cancer Center member physicians and scientists are dedicated to ending disparities in cancer care and no patient is ever turned away. We connect people with the resources they need to understand their cancer risk, detect it early and get comprehensive treatment. Our patients can receive promising cancer therapies before they are widely available, closing the gap between underserved communities and access to better treatments.
Established in 1909, IJR was the first child mental health clinic in the nation and one of the first to train psychologists and psychiatrists in child and adolescent specialties. Its rich history includes ties to Jane Addams’ Hull House, the first juvenile court in the nation, and even the Dick and Jane readers, which were developed at IJR to study the connection between reading difficulties and delinquency. Today it houses nationally recognized programs in psychology and child psychiatry and is a major site for social work training throughout the Chicago region.
