KENDALLVILLE, IND. – Dec. 27, 2022 – Parkview Noble Hospital has been recognized by the Indiana Hospital Association (IHA) – in partnership with Governor Eric J. Holcomb and State Health Commissioner Kris Box, MD, FACOG – for its commitment to infant and maternal health. The announcement was made at the third annual INspire Hospital of Distinction recognition program.
INspire, funded by the Indiana Department of Health’s Safety PIN grant, was developed to implement the delivery of best-practice care for Hoosier moms and babies and recognize hospitals for excellence in addressing key drivers of infant and maternal health.
Parkview Noble earned the INspire Hospital of Distinction designation based on its having implemented best practices in six key areas, including infant safe sleep, breastfeeding, tobacco prevention and cessation, perinatal substance use, obstetric hemorrhage, and maternal hypertension.
This is the third consecutive year that Parkview Noble has been recognized in the program.
“I was thrilled to learn that Parkview Noble Hospital has been honored with the INspire Hospital of Distinction award for our Family Birthing Center. Our co-workers take great pride in providing their patients with the highest-quality care, and this award reflects the fact that we are meeting that important objective.”
“Parkview Noble Hospital’s dedication to quality improvement in maternal and child health is truly inspirational,” said Brittany Waggoner, IHA Maternal and Infant Quality Improvement Advisor. “Despite the challenges our Indiana delivering facilities are facing today, they remain committed to creating a highly reliable obstetric care system for moms and babies across Indiana.”
The Indiana Hospital Association serves as the professional trade association for more than 170 acute care, critical access, behavioral health and other specialized hospitals in Indiana.
The Parkview Noble Hospital campus is located at 401 Sawyer Road in Kendallville.
