St. Vincent Hospital is a hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA. It is the flagship installation of St. Vincent Health which operates 22 facilities over 46 Indiana counties and is one of the largest ministries in the Catholic health care organization Ascension Health.

History[edit]

Driven by the faith of four Daughters of Charity who arrived in Indianapolis in 1881 with $34.77 in their pockets, the mission of St.Vincent is to treat the poor and sick by following six Core Values - Service of the Poor, Reverence, Integrity, Wisdom, Creativity and Dedication. St.Vincent has grown to include six Centers of Excellence: Women's, Children's, Orthopedics, Cardiovascular, Neuroscience and Cancer Care. The ageless mission of St.Vincent remains unchanged: to minister to the minds, bodies and spirits of those in need.

Peyton Manning Children's Hospital at St.Vincent[edit]

Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St.Vincent was founded on delivering family-centered care for all pediatric patients throughout Indiana. The dedicated children’s hospital has more than 300 pediatric specialists, 46 private inpatient rooms, 15 private rooms in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and 17 private rooms in the Hilbert Pediatric Emergency Department - the first pediatric ER in Indiana.

The array of pediatric specialists and clinical staff at the comprehensive children’s hospital provide the highest quality of care in emergency medicine, cancer and blood diseases, general surgery, cardiology, orthopedics, pulmonology, otolaryngology, rehabilitation and endocrinology.

Since 1998, Peyton Manning has had a public and private relationship with St.Vincent. On Sept. 5, 2007, the former Indianapolis Colts Quarterback reinforced his commitment to the children of Indiana by partnering with St.Vincent to announce the renaming of St.Vincent Children's Hospital to Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St.Vincent. Manning remains dedicated to the children of Indiana by promoting health programs and services, fundraising and advocating issues that affect pediatric patients.
