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.
Our physician-scientists work together to identify the most urgent opportunities for better diagnostic tools, treatments, devices and public health practices for children. These research priorities are set based on what we see in the daily care of patients. We believe we can speed the rate of discovery for the toughest problems in children’s health by uniting the best minds and sharing knowledge.
Our physicians and scientists collaborate on basic research to find new treatments for childhood conditions and diseases in this advanced 825,000 square foot facility.
The Children’s Clinical Research Center, located at Riley at IU Health, is one of the largest pediatric research facilities in the country. The CCRC is the primary site for pediatric clinical research done at Indiana University School of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics and within the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute.
This dedicated research center trains and mentors physicians, scientists and health professionals to conduct pediatric research. CHSR shares data and information technology that shapes state and national healthcare guidelines to deliver better outcomes for children. As one of many research institutes and centers linked to the IU School of Medicine, CHSR studies families with special healthcare needs and conducts research on global study global pediatric health issues.
