When children get serious infections, they need specialized care.
Pediatric infectious disease specialists Rush treat children facing a wide range of infectious conditions including the following types of infection:
- Blood or bloodstream
- Bone and joint
- Central nervous system
- Congenital and perinatal
We also provide HIV/AIDS treatment for children with perinatally acquired HIV infection, as part of the Rush/Cook County Center for Research and Education in Infectious Diseases (CORE Center).
Overall, there is no infection that our Rush pediatric infectious disease team won't treat.
Excellent Care for Kids

- Collaborative, family-centered care: At Rush, physicians from more than 30 specialties address the full range of pediatric diseases and congenital problems. As a state-designated children’s hospital, Rush University Children’s Hospital provides care that empowers parents and advances medical science.
