The Women's Hospital, located at Deaconess Gateway in Newburgh, IN, was recently recognized as one of the very best hospitals in the country by the Women's Choice Award.

When rating hospitals, the Women's Choice Award uses "robust criteria that includes relevant clinical performance, patient satisfaction, and appropriate accreditations. These Best Hospitals demonstrate exceptional ratings, providing the highest level of care and commitment to their patients’ health and well-being. The Women's Choice Award is the only designation that takes into consideration the preferences of women when selecting a hospital."

Calling The Women's Hospital 'one of the best in America' is not just hyperbole either - the numbers don't lie. Out of the nearly 4,300 hospitals reviewed, the Women's Hospital was rated in the top one percent in women's services, the top one percent in breast care, and in the top two percent in obstetrics. That's some pretty exclusive company. The Women’s Hospital is one of just 264 hospitals to meet the understandably high standards required for this recognition.

In order to be considered by the Woman's Choice Award, the Women's Hospital had to meet the following criteria:

  • Must have a dedicated center for breast care and be designated as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence.
  • Must provide comprehensive obstetrics services.
  • Must have a Level III or Level IV neonatal intensive care unit.
  • Must provide a full range of cardiovascular services.
  • Must have a Patient Recommendation Rating above the national average.

40 Real Indiana Towns with Quirky, Weird, and Funny Names

Outside the major cities, the Hoosier state is full of tiny little towns you've probably passed through on your way to one of those cities. Most of them are likely 100 to 150 years old, or older, and have been around far longer than the large metropolitan areas such as Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, South Bend, and Evansville. Typically, they were started by early settlers who found their way to the state and decided to make it home. Eventually, others would join them, and a community was formed. Over time, as the surrounding areas grew, most of them were folded into those areas and governed by the nearest city or county's governing body officially making them "unincorporated," meaning they did not have their own formally organized municipal government.

A scroll through Wikipedia's long list of unincorporated communities in Indiana shows several of them have names that by today's standards would be considered weird, quirky, or just downright right funny. These are my 40 favorities.
