Today, healthcare is about more than diagnosing and treating problems. At Riley Hospital for Children, they know that the most effective pediatric care arises from a partnership between patients, families, and clinicians. Starting with the work of the late Dr. Morris Green, who spent 20 years as the physician-in-chief, Riley Children's Health became one of the first hospitals to embrace what is now known as Patient and Family Centered Care. They are committed to a set of patient and family rights, which means family members are regarded as partners in care. Children are treated with compassion and respect.
At Riley, they are proud to have helped pioneer an approach that recognizes the important role that families can play in improving children’s health. Their philosophy is summed up in a quote from Dr. Green: “Let all who walk this way know that Indiana cherishes her families, that she loves her children. In this very special haven, no child shall cry unheard … none shall walk alone … and no mother or father shall be friendless.”
