Pediatrics

All parents want the safest possible delivery for their newborn child. The Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital offers experienced, family-centered care for babies born with complications.

IU Health Methodist Hospital maternal-fetal medicine delivers care for babies with:

Babies born with severe complications are stabilized in our Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and then transferred to nearby Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health for specialized care.

Our team of neonatology specialists includes doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists and social workers working together to provide:

  • Care for premature infants from 28 weeks gestation and beyond, including ventilation treatment
  • Medical intervention for babies exposed to maternal drug use during pregnancy
  • Treatment for hyperbilirubinemia (jaundice) that requires exchange transfusion

Over 3,000 babies are delivered at IU Health Methodist Hospital each year. It is our goal to keep mother and baby as close as possible. Our expert NICU team not only stabilizes infants who may need to be transferred to Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health, but also provides critical care to babies who may remain at IU Health Methodist Hospital with their mother.

As part of our family-centered approach, we encourage parents and other family to be primary members of the caregiving team. We look for every opportunity to involve you in the care and treatment of your baby, so you can begin to form a lasting bond.
