St. Vincent Clay Hospital recently opened a new Peyton Manning Children's Hospital room.
The Indianapolis-based children's hospital has partnered with SVCH to redesign an emergency room with a pediatric focus in the emergency department.
Along with Peyton Manning Children's Hospital, St. Vincent Clay Hospital is an affiliate of St. Vincent Health, a 17-hospital system serving 45 counties throughout Central Indiana.
"We are pleased to offer a dedicated pediatric emergency room for our community's patients and families," SVCH Administrator Jerry Laue said. "Our pediatric patients will have an increased patient experience as they are treated at our new Peyton Manning Children's Hospital emergency room."
The new football-themed emergency room will be decorated with memorabilia from the Indianapolis Colts. It will feature football jerseys, photography and autographed footballs.
The children's hospital will have a total of eight emergency rooms throughout the state after it also opens rooms at St. Vincent Williamsport Hospital, St. Vincent Frankfort Hospital, St. Vincent Randolph Hospital (Winchester), St. Vincent Mercy Hospital (Elwood) and St. Vincent Jennings Hospital (North Vernon).
