Major Health Partners was recognized today by the Indiana Hospital Association
(IHA), in partnership with Governor Eric J. Holcomb and State Health Commissioner
Kris Box, M.D., FACOG, for their 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
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.
Major Health Partners earned a INspire Hospital of Distinction 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.
“Major Health Partners is honored to be recognized by the Indiana
Hospital Association for our dedication to helping the state’s efforts
in reducing infant and maternal mortality,” said Melinda Linville,
Director of MHP Maternity Care. “We are very proud of this accomplishment
and what it means to families in our community.”
“Major Health Partners 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.”
Indiana Hospital Association serves as the professional trade association
for more than 170 acute care, critical access, behavioral health, and
