June 2017 – Indianapolis, IN – The Indiana Health Care Foundation (IHCF) recently awarded a total of $39,000 to two recipients implementing programs focused on advancing the standard of care for preventing and treating infections in post-acute and long term care settings. IHCF recognizes the importance of preventing and treating infections, particularly in this vulnerable population. These infections lead to the loss of tens of thousands of lives and cost the U.S. health care system billions of dollars each year.
The GrandView Pharmacy location in Brownsburg, IN was granted $19,500. The funds will go towards supporting the full implementation of a comprehensive antimicrobial stewardship program in partnership with Byron Health Center.
