IU Health Bloomington among Best Hospitals 2023 – 2024 as High Performing for Maternity Care



BLOOMINGTON - NOVEMBER 5, 2023 -– IU Health Bloomington has been named by U.S. News & World Report to its 2023 – 2024 Best Hospitals as a High Performing hospital for Maternity Care.

This is the highest distinction a hospital can earn for U.S. News’ Best Hospitals Procedures & Conditions ratings.

The annual Procedures & Conditions ratings are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for challenging health conditions or elective procedures.

Nikki Benich, MSN, RN, NEA-BC, IU Health South Central Region Director of Perinatal and

Pediatric Services, said, “Our caregivers and other support team members work hard to deliver supportive, excellent care guided by best practices, and it’s a true honor to have those efforts recognized. We’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you to our team members who put their whole heart into their work, and to our patients for entrusting us with their birthing experience.”

U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals across 15 specialties and 21 procedures and

conditions. Hospitals awarded a “Best” designation excelled at factors such as clinical

outcomes, level of nursing care and patient experience.

“For 34 years, U.S. News has provided data-informed rankings to help patients and their doctors find the best hospital to treat their illness or condition,” said Ben Harder, chief of health analysis and managing editor at U.S. News. “Fewer than half of evaluated hospitals earned any High Performing rating.

Hospitals that are High Performing have excelled in providing high quality care in specific procedures and/or conditions.”
