His successor, Dr. Joanne Smith, not only carried forward Betts’ legacy, she improved upon it. This includes her brainchild, the “Ability Lab,” which put a high quality, light filled rehab therapy space decorated with positive messages next to appropriate research scientists and laboratories. This proved extraordinarily effective and is one of the many good reasons behind RIC’s campaign to build a new hospital filled with similar spaces.
“There is nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come.” Victor Hugo
Win/win/win virtuous circles is a powerful idea whose time has come.
So is growing what is great about the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. For decades it’s been ranked the best rehabilitation hospital in the country.
Civic leaders know that Dr. Henry Betts led RIC to the top of the rankings because of his extraordinary focus on patients, talent for advocacy and ability to implement leading edge research for people with disabilities. Learn more here.
