Open Letter to our Community 

Dear Friends,

Chicago Children’s Center for Behavioral Health System transitioned its operation to AMITA Health, effective May 1, 2020.

For over 19 years, Chicago Children’s Center has been privileged to provide acute psychiatric services to children and adolescents in the Chicago area. We have served thousands of patients and their families, providing treatment and services for a wide range of psychiatric illnesses. This will now continue with AMITA.  The programs will not be closing and we worked closely with AMITA to ensure a seamless transition in care with a focus on quality and safety.

Our compassionate staff has been committed to delivering quality patient care with dignity and respect, with the goal of helping our patients return to their communities as healthier individuals. We thank the physicians and staff for their expertise and dedication in providing high quality, compassionate treatment and care to the patients we have served.
