(LAGRANGE) – Parkview LaGrange Hospital has completed a new state certification program.
In its commitment to excellent care for mothers and babies, Parkview LaGrange has completed the Indiana Department of Health Maternal and Child Health Division’s new Perinatal Standards of Care certification program. They have earned Level 1 certification for both obstetric and neonatal care.
The program certifies all Indiana birth facilities for obstetric and neonatal care based on nationally recognized guidelines. As Indiana hospitals and birthing centers previously self-identified their level of care, the program helps ensure mothers and babies receive care in the appropriate setting.
Parkview LaGrange Hospital applied for and received Level 1 certification, verifying its previously self-identified Level 1 status. As part of the certification process, IDOH surveyors reviewed the Hospital in five categories: facility capabilities; equipment and technology; medications; policies and procedures and personnel.
Todd Klinedinst, Vice President of patient Care Services at Parkview LaGrange, says they are very proud to join other Indiana hospitals in completing the certification process and confirming their commitment to delivering excellent care for mothers and babies.
He says this process reaffirms that their team has been following nationally recognized guidelines to give each family a safe a healthy start. It also reaffirms the outstanding caliber of care the dedicated nurses and physicians provide each and every day.
