Reid Health recognized for excellence in infant, maternal health
Oct. 20, 2021 -- Reid Health was recognized today by the Indiana Hospital Association (IHA), in partnership with Gov. Eric Holcomb and State Health Commissioner Kris Box, M.D., FACOG, for Reid's commitment to infant and maternal health at the second annual INspire Hospital of Distinction recognition program.
INspire, funded by the Indiana Department of Health's Safety PIN (Protecting Indiana's Newborns) 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.
Reid Health earned a Category of Excellence recognition based on implementing best practices in six key areas, including infant safe sleep, breastfeeding, tobacco prevention and cessation, perinatal substance use, obstetric hemorrhage, and maternal hypertension.
"Our providers and staff are passionate and committed to the health of mothers and infants in all the communities we serve," said Ayren Staton, Director of Women's Service for Reid Health.
"It's a great honor for our team to be recognized by the Indiana Department of Health for all the hard work and dedication put forth as we strive for excellence in the care we provide to our patients during their pregnancy and beyond."
"Indiana hospitals are grateful for the leadership of Gov. Holcomb and Dr. Box and are thrilled to be a partner in Indiana's effort to reduce infant mortality," said IHA President Brian Tabor. "We look forward to building on the progress we've made."
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.
