Posted in:

Overall hospital also recognized for second consecutive year.

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. (Oct. 12, 2020) – Dignity Health Sequoia Hospital has been voted a “Best Birth Center” for the 11th consecutive year by readers of Bay Area Parent magazine in its “Best of the Best” annual survey. Sequoia also was voted a “Best Hospital” for the second year straight.

“Hospitals play a vital role in helping mothers and babies get off to a healthy start,” said Sequoia Hospital President Bill Graham. “That the Sequoia Hospital Birth Center continues to be distinguished in this way, particularly in a region rich with world-class health care providers, speaks to our special brand of maternity care. Our families benefit as much from the latest prenatal and neonatal technology as they do from our kind and personalized care, helping them to feel safe, comfortable, and confident during their stay.”

Sequoia Hospital’s award-winning Birth Center offers an array of services and comforts, including all-private rooms each with a full ensuite bathroom, 24-hour anesthesiologist and OB physician coverage, an on-site Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), and breastfeeding support from our International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) nurses during the hospital stay and through the crucial early weeks after birth. Each room is bright and thoughtfully designed, featuring a bed for the birth partner as well as mom, a bassinet, and a relaxing rocking chair.

The results of this year’s survey, based on readers’ experiences during 2019, 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.”
