We built the best team, so you can breathe easier in your time of crisis
When you have an emergency, you don’t have time to shop around for the best treatment. And that’s why trust is so important.
Our emergency departments offer the experience and skill to provide you with the best care when you need it—so you have one less thing to worry about when you have a severe illness or injury.
Our team of emergency medicine specialists are on hand to treat your injuries efficiently and effectively any time, night or day.
Some of the emergency medical situations we treat include:
Supporting our emergency teams are lab and imaging services, many of which operate 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
Our emergency teams also have access to specialists, including orthopedic, cardiac, neurosurgery, cancer, pulmonary, transplant and more who can help with quick diagnosis and development of treatment plans.
IU Health LifeLine brings patients rapidly from remote areas or from community hospitals to our Level 1 Trauma Centers, including those within our network. Our aircraft are equipped with advanced mobile care technology, enabling exceptional care even before you even reach the hospital.
Our network includes Indiana’s most-established Level 1 Trauma Center and only pediatric Level 1 Trauma Center. When you are treated in one of our emergency departments, being connected to higher level trauma centers can mean faster escalated care, if you need it.
Our team is continuously looking for ways to improve your future trips to the emergency department.

Through our association with Indiana University School of Medicine, we are training physicians through residencies and fellowships that allow them to learn best practices from our team.
