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.
Riley Children’s Health has opened a new medical office offering outpatient specialty care to the families of Fort Wayne. With appointments available in multiple specialty areas, getting access to the highest level of care in the state is now more convenient than ever.
Hours: The office is staffed Monday through Friday from 8 am – 5 pm.
The days and hours for each department vary. Referrals are required.
In the Fort Wayne office, our pediatric gastroenterology team provides a wide range of comprehensive evaluation, individualized treatment plans and extensive education to help children and their families manage gastrointestinal conditions and improve symptoms. We also understand how chronic conditions such as constipation and encopresis (soiling) can be socially and emotionally traumatic for patients and families, and are happy to provide this level of care close to home.

Our pediatric neurosurgery team provides new patient consultations, as well as post-operative visits in the Fort Wayne office. In most cases, a patient’s initial exam can be completed locally in Fort Wayne, with only the more complex neurosurgical disorders requiring an exam at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health in Indianapolis. Telemedicine and teleradiology capabilities will also link our providers in Fort Wayne to colleagues in Indianapolis to deliver the most expert care close to home. The pediatric specialists at the Fort Wayne office are equipped to handle many neurosurgical conditions. Some of the conditions treated include brain and spinal tumors, spine deformities, spina bifida, scoliosis and concussions. Learn more about Neurosurgery services at Riley Children’s Health.
Our pediatric pulmonology team will partner with primary care physicians in Fort Wayne to diagnose, treat and manage the care of their patients with acute and chronic respiratory disorders, including difficult-to-control asthma, chronic cough and noisy breathing. Age-appropriate children will be able to perform spirometric lung function testing onsite at the time of their appointment, and our office can help arrange bronchoscopy evaluations or complex multidisciplinary follow-up at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health, if needed. In order to offer complete multidisciplinary care, we recommend patients with cystic fibrosis currently being followed at the Fort Wayne CF Care Center continue to receive their ongoing care at that location.
