Pediatrics

No matter how young or old your child is, it can be scary if he or she needs hospital-level care. The pediatric team at Indiana University Health Bloomington Hospital is here 24 hours a day to get your child back to health. Doctors, nurses, pharmacists, case managers, social workers, dietitians and chaplains work together to provide comprehensive care to every child and family.
