Blackford County Hospital Wins Award


HARTFORD CITY -- Indiana University Health Blackford Hospital has been recognized with the Indiana Rural Hospital Association''s Collaboration Award (IRHA).

The award recognizes an outstanding individual, company, governmental unit or other entity that worked jointly with others to achieve a common goal toward improving rural health.

The collaboration centered on the hospitals use of the Emmi program, a resource to improve the patient information and instructions given to patients.

The Emmi Program is beneficial whether one is living with a chronic condition, making an important medical decision, preparing for a procedure or simply trying to ensure a safer patient experience.

The award was presented at the IRHA''s annual meeting in June.
