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.
