Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital now has a second emergency room. The former Indianapolis Colts quarterback came to Evansville Wednesday for the grand opening.

The new emergency room is located in an upgraded section of St. Vincent Evansville’s ER. It includes seven private rooms dedicated to pediatric care.

Peyton Manning says he looks forward to continued growth.  

"The collaboration and the integration, those are the two words we keep stressing," he says. "It just provides more care for people closer to home."

St. Vincent’s pediatric services will also be rebranded to bear the Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital name.

St. Vincent officials say the affiliation gives the hospital access to a larger pool of resources.

The announcement builds on an existing partnership. Two doctors with Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital were already based at St. Vincent, which says it’s recruiting more.
