Riverview Health Recognized Two Years in a Row for Excellence in Infant and Maternal Health

December 13, 2021

Riverview Health was recently recognized by the Indiana Hospital Association (IHA), in partnership with Governor Eric J. Holcomb and State Health Commissioner Kris Box, MD, FACOG, with the Inspire Hospital of Distinction 2021 award for its commitment to infant and maternal health.

“Being recognized two years in a row is a true testament to the commitment our maternity team devotes to each of our patients,” said Michelle Allen, director of maternal and child services at Riverview Health. “In addition to making patient safety a priority, we strive to create an environment where our patients feel they have access to top-notch care but with a personal touch.” 

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. Riverview Health earned the Hospital of Distinction award based on implementing best practices in five key areas, including infant safe sleep, breastfeeding, tobacco prevention and cessation, perinatal substance use, and obstetric hemorrhage.
