Riley Hospital maternity unit opening postponed due to increased COVID cases

INDIANAPOLIS, IN — Riley Hospital for Children is pushing back the opening date for its highly-anticipated maternity unit.

Because of rising COVID-19 cases and the toll it’s taking on hospital workers, the hospital is delaying the grand opening of the Riley Maternity Tower, which was initially set to open this month.

Officials hope that an open date in late October or early November will work better for everyone involved.
