High-quality maternity care, provided from pregnancy through birth and postpartum is key to the long-term health of newborns and women who give birth. Given that maternity care is a major component of health care, Newsweek and Statista, a leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider, have partnered for the third time to identify America’s Best Maternity Hospitals in 2024.

The ranking is based on three pillars:

  • Nationwide Online Survey: Health care professionals and hospital managers with knowledge about maternity processes, such as neonatal and perinatal doctors, nurses, and midwives, were asked to recommend leading maternity hospitals in the U.S.
  • Patient Experience Survey: Survey of the overall patient experience in the hospital.
  • Hospital Quality Metrics: Indicators relevant to maternity care were considered.

Based on the results of the study, University Hospital is proud to be recognized on Newsweek’s list of America’s Best Maternity Hospitals 2024.
