May 11, 2023 — Englewood Health has been named one of the best hospitals in the U.S. for maternity care for the second year in a row by Newsweek in their 2023 Best Maternity Hospitals list.
“We are honored to be ranked as one of America’s Best Maternity Hospitals for the second year in a row,” says Valerie M. French, MBA, BSN, RNC-LRN, senior director of nursing for maternal/child health at Englewood Health. “With only 350 hospitals from across the U.S. included on the list this year, this distinction is particularly special because it recognizes our team’s enduring commitment to delivering the highest quality maternity care throughout pregnancy, birth, and post-partum.”
“Englewood Health prioritizes quality, safety, and providing an outstanding patient experience,” says Arthur Gross, MD, chief of obstetrics and gynecology at Englewood Health. “We deliver over 3,000 babies each year. Whether it is a routine delivery or managing a high-risk pregnancy, our team is committed to achieving the best possible outcome for every mother and baby and this ranking affirms that commitment.”
This accolade was given by Newsweek and consumer data company Statista Inc., following a rigorous evaluation process in which three data sources were considered.
Those sources are:
- A nationwide online survey: 10,000 medical professionals with knowledge of maternity care processes—including midwives, neonatal specialists, and OB/GYNs—were asked to recommend leading maternity hospitals.
- Hospital quality metrics: key performance indicators relevant to maternity care, including those relating to cesarean births, elective deliveries, and perinatal care.
- Patient satisfaction surveys: hospital patient surveys on topics like cleanliness, communication, staff responsiveness, and care transitions.
At Englewood Health’s Karen and Gary Singer Family Family Birth Place, moms and babies receive expert care and attention, and a full spectrum of services including prenatal care, high-risk testing and monitoring, childbirth education, and post-pregnancy resources and support.
The newly constructed facility offers entirely private rooms. Maternal-fetal medicine specialists and neonatologists are available on-site to care for high-risk mothers and newborns and provide timely, high-quality care in a modern neonatal intensive care unit.
