The Shirley Ryan AbilityLab (formerly Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago) is a premiere rehabilitation destination for adults and children with the most severe, complex conditions — from traumatic brain and spinal cord injury to stroke, amputation and cancer. Gensler, in partnership with HDR, and in association with Clive Wilkinson Architects and EGG Office, designed the 27-story, 1.2-million-square-foot facility as the first-ever “translational” research hospital in which clinicians, scientists, innovators, and technologists work together in the same space – surrounding patients, discovering new approaches and applying (or “translating”) research real time. This translational approach means patients have 24/7 access to the brightest minds, the latest research, and the best opportunity for recovery.
