Lurie Children’s Hospital
Allstate’s municipal bond portfolio invested $6 million in Lurie Children’s Hospital, which serves the greater Chicago area. The bond supported construction of new facilities that opened downtown in 2012. The location helps the hospital recruit top pediatric specialists to Chicago, improves research opportunities, and allows faster transport for critically ill newborns and for patients with chronic conditions. The hospital was constructed with 100% low-emission adhesives, sealants, paint, coating and carpets to promote good indoor air quality for patients and staff, and was recognized with a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certificate.
