Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health announced Riley Children’s Health, the official name for its statewide network of pediatric services, Wednesday. Riley Children’s Health is Indiana’s first full service statewide pediatric healthcare system.
Riley Children’s Health offers complete, comprehensive care for children, ranging from routine checkups at pediatrician offices to advanced treatments from highly skilled specialists. The system connects families with 200 primary care and 400 specialty care Riley Physicians in 19 communities across the state.
“For decades, Riley at IU Health has embodied pediatric excellence in complex hospital-based care,” said Matt Cook, President of Riley Children’s Health. “Riley Children’s Health builds upon this expertise to provide the highest level of pediatric care to children who may never step foot inside the hospital walls.”
Serving as an extension of Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health in Indianapolis, Riley Children’s Health allows for coordinated care between Riley’s primary care physicians and highly skilled specialty physicians in patients’ home communities.
“Riley Children’s Health goes beyond a brick and mortar hospital,” said Dr. Paul Haut, Chief Medical Officer of Riley Children’s Health. “In addition to treating the most complex cases, our goal is to keep kids healthy and out of the hospital as often as possible. Riley Children’s Health lets families know that they’re getting the same standard of care, regardless of their child’s need.”
