EVANSVILLE -

The Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital brand is expanding to southern Indiana. St. Vincent Evansville this week opened its new pediatric emergency room and says its outpatient and inpatient pediatric facilities will bear the Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital logo.

“With the opening of the new Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital Emergency Room, we are providing even more specialized services and space for our youngest patients,” said Dan Parod, president of the southern region for St. Vincent Evansville.

Parod says St. Vincent Evansville and the children’s hospital in Indianapolis have worked closely together for several years, especially in pediatric care. The new children’s ER in Evansville will be staffed by nurse practitioners specially trained in pediatrics, along with board-certified emergency medicine physicians.

“They [parents] are entrusting us with the care of their loved ones so they should expect the best of everything — the best doctors, the best nurses, the absolute best,” said Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital President Dr. Hossain M. Marandi.

Former Indianapolis Colts quarterback and Super Bowl champion Peyton Manning took part in the celebration to announce the naming rights.

“I am so proud of the care teams at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at Ascension St. Vincent for their ongoing dedication and for providing exceptional care for children throughout the state and beyond,” said Manning. “Indiana has and always will have a special place in my heart, and I am excited about the extension of the Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital brand, and pediatric services and offerings in Evansville.”

The new emergency room for children is located on the campus of St. Vincent Evansville in a separate area, adjacent to the hospital’s existing emergency room.

“The pediatricians and staff should be commended for their commitment to quality, innovation and successful outcomes in pediatric care,” said Manning.

    • Ahh…Yes! Turning a Hot Mess into a Cool Breeze

      "Problems cannot be solved by the level of thinking that created them," is attributed to Einstein over 75 years ago. This still holds true, particularly in challenging communications. Many people address conflict at the level it was created by rehashing and building more evidence for their ‘side’ of an argument. Repeating a position tends to intensify the separation of people.
