Region’s First Multi-Specialty Pediatric Center Opening at Memorial

To provide the best possible care to children in our community, and to help attract new pediatric specialists to Michiana, Memorial will open a new pediatric specialties office at 100 Navarre Place, suite 5550. It is the first multi-specialty pediatric center in the region, offering advanced-trained specialists all under one roof.

This opening will help strengthen and expand upon the care already available at Memorial Children’s Hospital, which is allowing more families than ever to get the advanced the care they need without traveling hours away on a regular basis. Medical services in this new space will include: pediatric neurology, developmental and behavioral pediatrics, pediatric endocrinology, pediatric pulmonology and infectious diseases, pediatric dietitians and pediatric diabetes educators.

This is no ordinary office space. With expansive views of the city, this dog- themed space titled “Best Friends By Your Side,” is infused with homey touches aimed at helping patients feel welcome and safe. Children can press a button to spin the giant pinwheel on their way in and even see a real therapy dog on occasion.

A special telemedicine suite is available where physicians can conference with their colleagues at Riley Hospital for Children and other hospitals. A specialized weight and measurement room is able to accommodate children with different abilities, including a wheelchair scale, and special examination tables are available that lower to 18 inches for easier accessibility for children with special needs. Other amenities include a pulmonary function room with treadmill, a special child-friendly procedure room.

The office will be open for viewing at the following times:

First-shift employee open house: 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Media preview and physician interviews: 2 – 4 p.m.
Second-shift employee open house: 4 – 6 p.m.
