December 6, 2022 — Englewood Health has been named one of the best hospitals in the country for maternity care by U.S. News & World Report.
In its annual Best Hospitals for Maternity list, U.S. News rated Englewood Health “High Performing,” their highest quality rating for maternity care. Fewer than half of all hospitals considered for the list earned this distinction.
“We are proud to be recognized as one of the best hospitals for maternity care,” says Valerie M. French, MBA, BSN, RNC, senior director of nursing for maternal/child health at Englewood Health. “Every day, we strive to meet or exceed families’ expectations and to provide the best possible birthing experience.”
To be recognized among the Best Hospitals for Maternity list, hospitals demonstrated excellence on multiple quality metrics that matter to expectant families, including complication rates, C-sections, vaginal births after C-sections, and episiotomies.
“This recognition reflects the dedication of our entire team to ensuring our patients and their families receive personalized, high-quality maternity care,” says Michael Vardy, MD, chief of obstetrics and gynecology at Englewood Health. “We are honored to be a part of this important time in our patients’ lives and to provide exceptional care at every stage of the birthing experience.”
Englewood Health’s maternal/child health services deliver nearly 3,000 babies annually. At the Karen and Gary Singer Family Family Birth Place at Englewood Health, moms and babies receive expert care and attention from Englewood Health’s dedicated nursing team, as well as a full spectrum of services including prenatal care, high-risk testing and monitoring, childbirth education, and post-pregnancy resources and support.
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 (NICU).
