LAGRANGE, IND. – Dec. 28, 2022 – Parkview LaGrange 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 LaGrange 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 LaGrange has been recognized in the program.
