Leading Academic Medical Center, Recognized Leader in Technology
A leading academic medical center. A recognized leader in technology. What does that mean for patients of Indiana University Health University Hospital? Those qualities mean patients have access to treatment, therapies and procedures found only at the most advanced academic medical centers. Many advances in medicine that help patients throughout the United States originate as ideas in the research laboratories at Indiana University School of Medicine and, through clinical research programs, become incorporated into patient care at IU Health University Hospital. What begins as the seed of a concept with one of our talented researchers can become a lifesaving treatment for a patient here in Indiana or across the country.
IU Health University Hospital is home to outstanding, nationally recognized programs. The only National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated cancer center in the state ⎯ the IU Health Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center ⎯ has its home at IU Health University Hospital.
We also are home to the largest transplant program by volume in Indiana. Our surgeons perform technologically advanced procedures such as pancreas transplant to cure type 1 diabetes, and performed the first live Twitter-cast surgery in the state ⎯ living kidney donation transplant ⎯ in June 2012.
Because we are a teaching hospital, the world-class expertise of our physicians and surgeons is imparted to the next generation of physicians and surgeons who will provide care to you and your family. In fact, more than half of the physicians in Indiana were trained at IU Health University Hospital.
A top-notch academic medical center provides the wisdom and compassion of experienced physicians alongside the energy and vitality of physicians-in-training. Together, the healthcare professionals at IU Health University Hospital dedicate their lives to restoring and maintaining the health of patients and residents throughout Indiana.
