Today, we announced the recipients of the Healthgrades 2021 Women’s Care Awards including the Healthgrades 2021 Obstetrics and Gynecology Excellence Award™, the Healthgrades 2021 Labor and Delivery Excellence Award™, and the Healthgrades 2021 Gynecologic Surgery Excellence Award™. These awards recognize hospitals across the country that provide superior care for women during labor and delivery and gynecologic procedures.*
Now more than ever, it’s important to do your research before selecting a hospital to deliver a baby or for broader OB-GYN care. Women can turn to trusted information, like the Healthgrades Women’s Care Awards, to confidently evaluate hospitals and make health care decisions.
Additionally, as part of this release, we are also encouraging women to consider various factors before selecting a hospital in our latest article, “6 Things to Consider When Choosing Your Maternity Hospital.” Factors like quality of care, access to specialized care for high-risk pregnancies or NICUs, and if the hospital accepts your insurance should all be considered before selecting a hospital to deliver a baby.
