Greene County General Hospital is acknowledged for its superiority in the care of newborns and mothers



Linton, Indiana – The Indiana Hospital Association (IHA), in collaboration with Indiana Governor Eric J. Holcomb and State Health Commissioner Lindsay Weaver, M.D., FACEP, is once again recognizing Greene County General Hospital (GCGH) for its dedication to mother and newborn health.

For the fourth year in a row, GCGH was awarded the INspire Hospital of Distinction earlier this month.

With funding from the Indiana Department of Health’s Safety PIN grant, the Inspire program was created to offer Hoosier mothers and babies best-practice care and to honor hospitals that excel in addressing important factors that influence maternal and newborn health. “The daily work of our delivering hospitals makes a monumental impact on the lives of so many Hoosier moms and infants in every corner of our state: said Governor Holcomb.

“We will continue to collaborate with these caregivers to support our shared goal of a healthy Hoosier tomorrow. They are greatly needed and appreciated.” This distinction was granted to GCGH because of its implementation of best practices in seven critical areas: socioeconomic determinants of health, perinatal substance use, obstetric hemorrhage, breastfeeding, infant safe sleep, and tobacco prevention and cessation.
