Frank Schubert, M.D.,

Indiana has one of the worst infant mortality rates in the country: 7.1 infant deaths per 1,000 live births. In some zip codes, our infant mortality rate is similar to that of third-world countries. Too many babies in Indiana don’t make it to their first birthday.

That’s why we have developed Riley Maternity and Newborn Health: to save babies’ lives by giving expectant mothers and newborns better access to the level of care they need. Riley is the only healthcare provider in Indiana equipped to tackle a problem this large. It’s our responsibility and our great honor to lead our state’s response to this crisis.

Thanks to donors we are aggressively building new programs, launching research studies and recruiting world-class physicians and staff to elevate care for mothers and babies across Indiana.  

Thank you for supporting Riley Maternity and Newborn Health. It’s hard to imagine a gift greater than allowing a child the chance to celebrate their first birthday.
