Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health flu-related visitor restrictions have been lifted. However, because babies, especially those who are ill or premature, are at higher risk of serious complications if they get the flu, visitation restrictions are still in place for all Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) until further notice.
Few healthcare providers in Indiana are in a better position than Riley at IU Health to influence the health and wellness of children across the state. As the leading resource for comprehensive pediatric care, we weave research and innovation into our daily life to bring children better outcomes. Our commitment to this goal would not be possible without resources like Children’s Health Services Research.
Embedded in the Indiana University School of Medicine, Children’s Health Services Research (CHSR) is one of the largest and most active pediatric research programs of its kind in the United States. Their work supports pediatric medical research everywhere, and it helps medical professionals use new knowledge to shape healthcare policy and practices.
Although their investigations benefit healthcare on a national and international level, Children’s Health Services Research is especially important at Riley at IU Health. CHSR helps us apply knowledge gathered through basic lab science and approved clinical studies—two areas of research supported by our key allies, the Herman B Wells Center for Pediatric Research and Children’s Clinical Research Center.
Here are just a few of the ways CHSR lends support to Riley at IU Health:
CHSR is the link that brings research and innovation together at Riley at IU Health on the most practical level, using science to prove what good healthcare is when it moves from the experimental world into the real world.
We provide multispecialty care for a number of conditions. Below are links to our related programs.
