Pediatrics

Pediatrics at Indiana University Health West Hospital embraces the art of caring for children, with specialty staff and amenities designed specifically for younger patients. Pediatric rooms are all private, with plenty of space for family members to be at a child's side throughout his or her stay. Everything from carpet to wall coverings to artwork reflects the hospital's natural setting, creating a peaceful, calm environment for children of all ages. We feature whimsical yet practical touches, such as child-size bathtubs, in each of our pediatric rooms and allow parents to continue nightly routines with children—providing a sense of familiarity and comfort.
