RILEY HOSPITAL FOR CHILDREN
Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health is the only
Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in the state of
Indiana, which sets them apart from all other children’s
hospitals in our state. As Indiana’s first and only
comprehensive hospital dedicated exclusively to the
care of children, Riley Hospital for Children has provided
hope and healing to children and their families for over
ninety years. Since opening its doors in 1924, Riley
Hospital has focused on family-centered pediatric care
for any child who needs it. Riley is also home to the
state's largest pediatric research program at the Well’s
Center for Pediatric Research, where physician-scientists
vigorously work to bring new cures to the bedside.
Riley Hospital and the Wells Center for Pediatric Research depend on the generosity of donors to support vital clinical programs and pediatric medical research. Each year Riley serves over 300,000 inpatients and outpatients from across Indiana, the nation and the world. From simple care associated with the health and wellness of children, to the most critically-ill children and medically complex cases, Riley is the leader for pediatric care in the state and the region.
By contributing to Indiana University Dance Marathon, you are enabling innovative people, programs and technologies to translate new ideas into the best possible support for families.
