Indiana Hospital Association recognizes Norton KDH with INspire award for infant and maternal health

Norton King’s Daughters’ Health was recognized by the Indiana Hospital Association (IHA), in partnership with Governor Eric J. Holcomb and State Health Commissioner Lindsay Weaver, M.D., FACEP, for its commitment to infant and maternal health during the fourth 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.

“We collaborate with other hospitals, which helps everyone,” said Allison Higgins, Nurse Manager for the Mother-Baby Unit at Norton King’s Daughters’ Health.  “Our goal is to improve patient care and outcomes.  The health of our mothers and babies is paramount to our every day mission and purpose.  We have an incredibly dedicated team of nurses, physicians and providers.”

Norton King’s Daughters’ Health earned INspire recognition based on implementing best practices in seven key areas, including infant safe sleep, breastfeeding, tobacco prevention and cessation, perinatal substance abuse, obstetric hemorrhage, maternal hypertension and social determinants of health.

“Our birthing hospitals work tremendously hard to make sure all babies born in Indiana have the best start at life, while caring for the mothers who delivered them,” said Dr. Weaver.  “Reducing infant and maternal mortality requires a continued multi-prong approach over the course of many years to see impactful change.  It is heartening to see the progress we’ve made but we must continue to adopt best practices so that we can celebrate more first birthdays in Indiana.”
