Our Project

The new Maternity Tower at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health centralizes all inpatient childbirth and newborn care offered at three Indiana University Health hospitals in downtown Indianapolis. Riley now houses the largest number of neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) beds in Indiana and among the largest in the country. Families who had previously visited the Riley Hospital for Children facility might not recognize the health care provider’s newly renovated tower, the “phase three” building of a five-phase campus, to expand and modernize health services for mothers and their newborn babies. When visitors enter the first-floor lobby, they are surrounded by bright, naturally lit and modernized spaces, public and more private waiting areas, open spaces and a grand view of the original front facade of Riley Hospital for Children that adorns the west wall of the atrium. Two round, all-glass elevators greet visitors, inviting them to see all the way up the building.
