Sacramento, Calif. (May 11, 2023) – Dignity Health Dominican Hospital has been recognized as part of Newsweek’s list of America’s Best Maternity Hospitals 2023. This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The awards list was announced on May 10 and can be viewed on Newsweek’s website.
Three data sources were used for the evaluation:
- Nationwide online survey: Health care professionals and hospital managers with knowledge about maternity processes (e.g., neonatal and perinatal doctors, nurses and midwives were asked to recommend leading maternity hospitals)
- U.S. Medical Key Performance Indicators on hospitals with a focus on indicators relevant to maternity care
- Results from patient surveys
Newsweek and Statista invited over 10,000 medical professionals to participate in the survey. Only 384 winners were recognized on the Best Maternity Hospitals 2023 list.
“We are honored to be recognized by Newsweek as one of America’s Best Maternity Hospitals,” said Dr. Nanette Mickiewicz, MD, President and CEO of Dominican Hospital. “A special thank you goes to our highly-skilled maternity careteam for their dedication to providing compassionate care to mothers and their families during a special time in their lives.”
