INDIANAPOLIS (Inside Indiana Business): Nine Indiana hospitals have been designated among the best in the state as part of U.S. News & World Report’s annual Best Hospitals ranking.

The Indiana University Health Medical Center in Indianapolis tops the list of hospitals in the Hoosier State. It is the only hospital that is also ranked among specialty categories, coming in at No. 34 for Ear, Nose & Throat, and No. 48 for Geriatrics.

The hospital is also listed as “high performing” in several other categories, such as gastroenterology & GI surgery, urology, colon cancer surgery, COPD, diabetes, heart attack, heart failure, kidney failure, knee replacement surgery, lung cancer surgery, and transcatheter aortic valve replacement.

Tied for 4th in the state is really saying something!
I do like Fort Wayne’s hospitals, personally. ..though i don’t always enjoy the means, by which, i arrive.

But, it’s nice they take the time to do these studies, all throughout the different areas of the hospitals.
I could have done this study myself, but now, i have to rely on others. Sometimes when i have friend(s) over, they have to let me know that the waste receptacle to use a “little changing”.
Since i had COVID-19 back in December, my olfactory system is just not up to snuff anymore.
Makes me proud to know that when i’m waiting, for those in surgery, they can enjoy every last breath.
Means a lot.
