United Health Foundation
According to the 2019 edition of America’s Health Rankings, Tennessee is the 42nd healthiest state. We are now ranked 41st in maternal mortality, down from 33rd, and 39th in infant mortality, down from 38th. Research shows Medicaid expansion helps mothers stay healthy before, during and after pregnancy, reducing rates of both infant and maternal mortality.
