Ascension St. Vincent has been providing compassionate care to children for over 140 years. More than 20 years ago, a group of pediatric specialists began working at Ascension St. Vincent with a goal of providing tertiary-level pediatric care in a setting that reflected and advanced the core values of St. Vincent.
The success of these physicians led to the building of a special place meant to focus on the unique needs of children and their families: Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital. Since opening its doors in 2003, Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital has grown to include 48 private inpatient beds, 23 Pediatric Intensive Care Unit beds, a 17-bed dedicated Pediatric Emergency Department, and a comprehensive system of outpatient specialty practices. Our 97 bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is the largest in the state of Indiana, which provides the highest level of care to our smallest patients.
