Lutheran Children's Hospital opened in 1999, the result of several local pediatricians who envisioned giving families throughout northeastern Indiana access to expert pediatric medical care. Previously, these families were driving several hours one way for that care. Today, Lutheran Children's Hospital teams with more than 75 pediatricians practicing in 27 areas of pediatric specialties in an environment filled with imagination and color. The award-winning design of the tree house elevator, specially decorated rooms, hallways and waiting areas invite children and their families to focus on something other than the often unpleasant purpose of their visit. Lutheran Children's Hospital believes children are special people, not just small adults.
