Senator Mulroe presents HB 763 on the Senate floor

Legislation sponsored by Senator John G. Mulroe (D-Chicago) to allow Maryville Children’s Healthcare Center to care for additional medically fragile children passed the Illinois Senate without opposition.

“Maryville contributes so much to our communities and the 10th Senate District,” Mulroe said. “I am happy to support their efforts to expand operations and help more medically-fragile children and their families.”

House Bill 763 would increase the number of children allowed to receive treatment at Maryville Children’s Healthcare Center under the Alternative Health Care Delivery Act. The legislation will now return to the House for approval of the Senate’s changes before it can advance to the governor’s desk.

Maryville Children’s Healthcare Center cares for children that depend on medical technology, such as ventilators, and other medically fragile children. The center trains parents to provide a smooth transition when a child returns home after hospitalization.

“I look forward to seeing the positive impact this legislation will have on families and the neighborhood,” Mulroe said. “I will continue to work with the House and governor’s office to ensure that this legislation becomes law.”
