02_AboutUs_RileyHospital Elisa Hartman, Plainfield, Ind., with Allison Yancey, M.D.

Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health is one of the nation’s best children’s hospitals. Expert, family-centered pediatric care is available at Riley for every child who needs it. 

Riley Hospital opened in 1924 as the state’s first hospital exclusively for children. 

Now, more than 90 years later, Riley is home to the state’s largest pediatric research program, where physician-scientists move their discoveries as quickly as possible to the bedsides of children. 

Children visit Riley more than 300,000 times each year.
