Mission Statement

The Shirley Ryan AbilityLab is dedicated to providing the highest-quality patient care through integrated research, scientific discovery, and education for the purpose of maximizing the recovery of the individuals in our care.

Description

The Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, formerly the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC), is the nation's #1-ranked provider of comprehensive physical medicine and rehabilitation care to patients from around the world and is the leader in research and development of the cutting-edge treatments and technologies in its field.

The Shirley Ryan AbilityLab is not just a new research hospital, it’s a new kind of research hospital, one that is revolutionizing the future of rehabilitation and creating a new category of medicine. We invested $550 million in this state-of-the-art research hospital.

It is designed explicitly for the practice of "translational research" - a model for medical care in which research is applied directly (translated) during patient care. It is the world’s first and only center of its kind on the planet.
