Riley Children’s Health joins collaborative hospital network

INDIANAPOLIS (WPTA21) – Riley Children’s Health on Monday announced it would become the first hospital in the Midwest to participate in “CureWorks,” a select network that will give oncologists new access to resources and medical trials.

The alliance involves five hospitals ranging from Los Angeles and Seattle out west to Washington, D.C. on the east coast. A Canadian hospital in Vancouver is also a participant.

CureWorks mission, as self-described, is to “accelerate the development of cures through the power of collaboration so children with cancer can grow up to realize their full potential.”

“This opportunity to work with esteemed partners will allow more rapid development of the new frontier of care to help children fight cancer,” said Riley Children’s Health chief medical officer Dr. Elaine Cox, “Together we can make a difference – faster.”

Riley Children’s Health is part of Indiana University Health. The first permanent presence in northeast Indiana for Riley — a clinic on Cook Road — opened in early 2018
