The Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) at Riley Hospital for Children and IU Health Methodist Hospital are putting visitor restrictions in place starting Monday, Nov. 18th. Only visits by parents plus four designated adults identified by the parents will be allowed on the NICU floor.
Siblings and children under 18 will not be permitted. These restrictions minimize risk of infection to patients already at risk and will be in place through spring 2020.
We are endowed with an extraordinary team of volunteers who make a difference through indispensable service to patients, families and staff. If you are interested in learning more about how you can serve, we invite you to explore our volunteer opportunities.
