FUNDING PROJECTS

ST. VINCENT HOUSE

(Since 2015)

​​

This year we will continue our focus of leaving a legacy at the soon-to-be constructed St. Vincent House.  We are working towards obtaining naming rights within a particular area of the house.  Last year alone we raised over $20,000 towards our goal. 

As a dedicated hospitality house on the St. Vincent Indianapolis campus, the St. Vincent House will serve as a home away from home for families who live more than 30 miles from Indianapolis, especially those facing financial barriers.  Some of the comforts provided at the St. Vincent House will include 20 overnight guest rooms, meditation spaces and a chapel, kitchens & laundry rooms on each level, family gathering rooms, a library, playroom, classroom, and an outdoor courtyard and playground.

COMMUNICATIONS CENTER (2013)

 

Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St.Vincent addressed the shortage of resources for pediatric communication disorders through the creation of a Pediatric Communications Center.  This Center features a team of highly-qualified experts working together to provide a seamless system for families where diagnosis, medical evaluation, hearing instrument/assistive device fitting, intervention services are quickly and easily accessed.  The Center also provides other support services such as information about early intervention, guidance to accessing appropriate technology, and help for families in working with school systems to obtain appropriate educational supports.  A loaner program is also available to provide hearing aids for patients to try hearing devices for a limited period of time.

NEONATAL CRITICAL CARE TRANSPORT ISOLETTES (2014)

During a health emergency that requires an ambulance transport, the two most important factors are quality of care and speed.  It is imperative for a patient to receive the best care possible by trained professionals with access to modern equipment, while being transported quickly to a hospital for continued treatment. Isolettes are self-contained incubator units that provide a controlled heat, humidity, and oxygen environment for the isolation and care of premature and low-birth weight infants.  An isolette is made of a clear plastic material and has a large door and portholes for easy access to the infant by medical professionals with a minimum of heat and oxygen loss.  A controlled mechanism constantly monitors the infant’s temperature and controls the heat within the unit.

MRI GOGGLES (2012)

 

Having an MRI can be a fearful and anxious event for anyone, especially a child. This can lead to longer exam times, possible need for sedation, repeat exams and affect the patient experience. Through the use of MRI-safe video goggles patients may watch a DVD, television show or ipod video. These goggles have shown to lessen or eliminate anxiety and fear experienced by patients.  These MRI-safe video goggles are utilized by our pediatric patients at Peyton Manning Children's Hospital in a child friendly MRI suite.
