Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital | 100 Great Hospitals in America 2015

Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital (Indianapolis). An integral part of IU Health, Magnet-designated IU Health Methodist Hospital has served patients from in and around the Indianapolis area for more than 100 years.

Healthgrades named IU Health Methodist Hospital to its Top Hospitals list for 2015, and IU Health's academic health center — of which IU Health Methodist is a part — was named the No. 1 hospital in Indiana in U.S. News & World Report's most recent rankings.

IU Health Methodist is home to the Fairbanks Center for Medical Ethics, which coordinates the major service, research and educational efforts in clinical ethics for IU Health. It is one of the few clinically based medical ethics centers in the U.S.

IU Health features the fourth largest transplant center in the country by volume, and IU Health Methodist plays a large role in that program. The hospital has a long history of transplant success, as it is where the first successful heart transplant at a private hospital in the world occurred in 1982. It is also where the first heart-lung transplant in Indiana occurred in 1989. Continuing to build on that history of excellence in transplants, in 2012 the hospital was named a Blue Distinction Center in the area of adult heart transplants.
