Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago is now the Shirley Ryan Ability Lab

I completely loved doing my residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC), from 1993 to 1996.

Roughly a quarter century later, in July 2019, I was happy to be back to give a Grand Rounds lecture on Coccyx Pain (Tailbone Pain).

There is a totally new and beautifully modern building (the Shirley Ryan Ability Lab) just 2 blocks from where the former RIC building still stands.

Some items from RIC are still found in the new building, such as:

  • the huge Marc Chagall’s Tapestry, depicting the biblical story of “Job”, which formerly hung in the lobby of RIC.
  • the bust/statue of Henry B. Betts, M.D., (Dr. Foye’s former Chairman at RIC). The statue was created by Yeongchi Wu, M.D., who was famous for his global contributions to amputee care via the invention of the rigid removable dressing (used after amputation, before a patient is fitted with an artificial limb).
