Pediatric Infectious Diseases

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:

  • Antibiotic-resistant
  • Blood or bloodstream
  • Bone and joint 
  • Cardiovascular
  • Central nervous system
  • Congenital and perinatal
  • Gastrointestinal

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

  • Expertise in congenital infections: In rare instances, babies who have congenital infections are born with health problems. At Rush, these babies are cared for in a level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). The NICU at Rush provides the highest level of care available for seriously ill babies.
  • 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.
