IU Health has various branches throughout Indiana including one in Bloomington.

Indiana University Health has been recognized as the first Colloquium Accredited Heart Failure System in the U.S. The prize was announced last Thursday by The Healthcare Accreditation Colloquium, a hospital membership organization that works with hospitals to provide high-quality heart failure treatment.

The Chief Executive Officer of the Healthcare Accreditation Colloquium Dr. Tony Joseph says IU Health should be proud of the recognition.

“They earn this recognition for their work in putting together a comprehensive fare plan where the state of Indiana for those patients with heart failure,” he says.

Susie Carter, a cardiac rehab nurse for Indiana University Health at the Bloomington Hospital, says hospital employees want to make sure all the hospital branches have high standards.

“What we want to try to do is to be sure that we can provide the same continual care, not the same level necessarily, but that patient can obtain treatment for their heart failure at any one of these facilities,” she says.

The Health Accreditation Colloquium official says other hospital systems around the U.S. should look to IU Health as an example.
