Indiana University Health
3 year commitment
Hospitals are the places we go to get healthy, so the food we eat while there should have a positive impact on our bodies. With this in mind, more than 700 hospital partners across the nation, including the Indiana University Health system, teamed up with PHA to make healthier choices easier.
On October 6, 2012, Indiana University Health joined PHA’s Hospital Healthier Food Initiative, partnering with us on our mission to create dramatic and expansive improvements in hospital nutrition. From committing to display only health-promoting food options in cafeteria and menu advertising, to removing all fryers and deep-fat fried products and placing healthier food options within five feet of the checkout, the system’s changes have the potential to reach many. At the time of the commitment, Indiana University Health System’s 19 hospitals served more than 6 million meals yearly to 145,000 inpatients and approximately 126,500 employees.
More than 700 hospital partners (10 percent of all hospitals nationwide) take part in our Hospital Healthier Food Initiative.
