Welcome to Indiana Emergency
Medical Services for Children

iEMSC focuses on improving the quality of emergency care for children with serious injury and illness, by integrating children’s interests into the existing hospital and EMS system. We represent the unique needs of children within the healthcare community throughout the state, working to ensure that all children everywhere in Indiana have timely access to appropriate emergency medical care.




The EMSC Innovation and Improvement Center (EIIC) is leading a Quality Improvement Collaborative, Pediatric Readiness Quality Collaborative (PRQC), to assist hospital emergency departments to improve their pediatric readiness. A Train-the-Trainer model will be used to provide networks with tools to improve pediatric readiness. Twenty teams, composed of training and affiliate sites will be guided to develop local quality improvement efforts to foster pediatric readiness. A children's hospital or comprehensive medical center may apply to become a trainer site with 8-12 affiliate sites.  Indiana hospitals may apply. Please visit EIIC to apply.



All nomiations will be considered for the 2018 7th Annual Pediatric Heroes Awards Breakfast. Do you know someone that goes above and beyond for children, or has done something extraordinary for a child? If so, please nominate that pediatric hero.  You can nominate your healthcare hero by completing this nomination form and emailing to margo.knefelkamp@indianapolisems.org
