Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood Visit Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health

It was a typical day for patients and their families at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health—until country music superstar Garth Brooks showed up to surprise them!

Garth & Trisha stopped by the children’s hospital to enjoy some downtime with patients and also cut the ribbon on the Backyard—the hospital’s new outdoor play space. Brooks’ Teammates for Kids Foundation brought the indoor Child Life Zone play space to Riley Hospital in 2014 and is also behind the opening of the outdoor Backyard—complete with yard games, putt-putt, musical instruments and activities for patients of all ages.

“It’s how thankful you are that your children are healthy, but if your children face that challenge, how thankful we are to have someone like Riley here for your children. We’re all very lucky.” – Garth Brooks

“It’s this community. This is a community that loves and wants this program.” – Trisha Yearwood
