The Commonwealth Fund named Iowa the best children’s health system in the nation on Wednesday.

The State Scorecard on Child Health System Performance examines states’ performance across 20 areas, including children’s health-care access, affordability of care, prevention and treatment, the potential to lead healthy lives, and health system equality.

“This report confirms that Iowa’s children’s health system is second to none,” said Rep. Dave Loebsack, D-Iowa. “The innovative polices that Iowa has implemented, particularly in the areas of prevention and mental health services, make Iowa a model for the nation.”
