America's Best Maternity Hospitals 2022

There's nothing more joyful than the birth of a healthy baby. High quality
maternity care from pregnancy through birth and even postpartum is key to the long-term health of both newborns and of new mothers. To help you pick the best place to achieve the happy outcome of a healthy child and a healthy mother, Newsweek and data firm Statista are proud to announce our ranking of America's Best Maternity Hospitals 2022. Our list names the top 350 leading hospitals for maternity care in the U.S., divided into two performance categories: five ribbon hospitals (161 institutions) and four ribbon hospitals (189 institutions). Within each category, hospitals are listed in alphabetical order.

The evaluation is based on three data sources: a nationwide online survey in which hospital managers and maternity healthcare professionals (e.g., neonatal care providers and OB/GYNs) were asked to recommend leading maternity hospitals; medical key performance indicator data relevant to maternity care (e.g., a hospital's rate of cesarean births); and patient satisfaction data (e.g., how patients rated a hospital's medical staff for responsiveness and communication).

We hope you find our ranking useful in choosing the right maternity hospital for your family.

Methodology:
The America's Best Maternity Hospitals 2022 ranking awards the 350 leading maternity hospitals in the U.S. The list is based on three data sources:

1. Nationwide online survey
From February to March 2022 over 10,000 hospital managers and maternity healthcare professionals with knowledge about maternity processes were asked to recommend leading maternity hospitals in the U.S. Recommendations for their own employer/hospital were not allowed. Participants were asked to rate the recommended maternity hospitals in several quality dimensions on a scale of 1-10: perinatal care, operative obstetrics, patient education, accommodation and service, and overall nurse and midwife staffing. These assessments and the recommendations were used to determine the reputation score.

2. Medical key performance indicators
These are publically available data from a variety of sources on indicators relevant to maternity care. From the Joint Commission International, an independent, non-profit hospital accreditation organization, data were available for: cesarean birth, exclusive breast milk feeding and perinatal care, as well as overall complications in term newborns per 1000 live births classified as overall, moderate and severe. Data on elective delivery was available from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. These data were used to determine the KPI score.

3. Results from patient surveys
Publically available data from hospital surveys of patient satisfaction during their hospitalizations. Survey topics included: cleanliness of the hospital, communication of the nurses/doctors, care transition, communication about medicines, discharge information, quietness, and staff responsiveness. Those data were used to determine the patient score.
Based on predefined thresholds for each of the three data sources, awarded hospitals were grouped into two tiers: five ribbon hospitals and four ribbon hospitals.

*Five ribbon performance = KPI score >83% + reputation score >65% + patient score >70% (161 hospitals)
*Four ribbon performance = KPI score >70% +reputation score >60% + patient score >70% (189 hospitals)

The rankings are composed exclusively of hospitals that are eligible with regard to the scope described here. The ranking is the result of an elaborate process which, due to the interval of data-collection and analysis, is a reflection of the last 12 months. Furthermore, events preceding or following the period 3/31/21 to 3/31/22 and/or pertaining to individual persons affiliated/associated with the facilities were not included in the metrics. The results of this ranking should not be used as the sole source of information for future deliberations. The information provided in this ranking should be considered with other available information about hospitals, or, if possible accompanied by a visit to a facility. Due to the focus on uncomplicated pregnancies, no conclusions towards high-risk pregnancies and specialized obstetrics care pertaining to these situations can be drawn from this ranking. The quality of hospitals that are not included in the ranking is not disputed.
