REDWOOD CITY, CA. (August 31, 2017) – Dignity Health Sequoia Hospital was voted a Best Birth Center for the eighth consecutive year by readers of Bay Area Parent magazine in its ‘Best of the Best’ annual survey. Sequoia also was voted a ‘Best Hospital’ by the magazine’s readers.

“When you combine personal, expert care from highly skilled physicians and nurses delivered with humankindness, you’ve got a recipe for an extraordinary experience that patients remember and recommend to their families and friends,” said Sequoia Hospital President Bill Graham. “We’re proud to consistently be voted a family favorite by Bay Area families for providing quality and comprehensive care during every stage of life.”

Sequoia Hospital’s award-winning Birth Center offers an array of services and comforts, including all private rooms with en suite bathrooms, 24-hour anesthesiologist and OB physician coverage, an on-site Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and breastfeeding support from our International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) nurses during the hospital stay and through the crucial early weeks after birth.

“Expectant mothers and newborns have access to world-class care at Sequoia Hospital’s Birth Center without having to travel far from home,” said Jennifer Doran, RN, BSN, director of Perinatal Services at Sequoia Hospital. “Our dedication to providing the highest level of care and compassion for each and every birth is why Bay Area families continue to choose us to be a part of their birth experience.”

The results of this year’s survey, based on readers’ experiences during 2016, were announced in the magazine’s annual ‘Best of the Best’ issue. Bay Area Parent magazine has been providing information and resources to families in the Bay Area for more than 30 years. The awards are based on voting by approximately 15,000 readers, who cast their votes online for the “best family-friendly businesses and services.”
