May 12, 2022 — Englewood Health has been named one of the best hospitals in the U.S. for maternity care by Newsweek’s 2022 Best Maternity Hospitals list.
“We are honored to be named one of the best hospitals for maternity care in the U.S.,” says Valerie M. French, MBA, BSN, RNC, senior director of nursing for maternal/child health at Englewood Health. “This award reflects the dedication of our clinical staff to providing the highest quality, personalized care for women before and throughout the labor and delivery experience.”
This mark of distinction was presented by Newsweek and consumer data company Statista Inc., following a rigorous vetting process in which three data sources were evaluated.
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.
- Key performance indicators (KPIs): publicly sourced KPIs 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.
Englewood Health delivers nearly 3,000 babies annually. At Englewood Health’s Karen and Gary Singer Family Family Birth Place, moms and babies receive expert care and attention, 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).
