U.S. News & World Report has named three Kettering Health hospitals as a 2022-2023 High Performing hospital for Maternity Care.
The following facilities earned the high-performing designation by exceling on multiple quality metrics such as C-section rates in lower-risk pregnancies, newborn complication rates, exclusive breast milk feeding rates, early elective delivery rates and vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) rates, among other measures.
- Kettering Health Main Campus
- Kettering Health Soin Medical Center
- Kettering Health Washington Township
“This recognition is a direct result of the excellent, high-quality care our maternity teams provide to our patients,” said Miriam Cartmell, network executive director of Kettering Health Women’s and Children’s Services. “It helps new and expectant parents feel confident in choosing a Kettering Health facility for maternity care.”
U.S. News evaluated nearly 650 hospitals that provide high-quality labor & delivery services for uncomplicated pregnancies for its 2022-2023 Best Hospitals for Maternity Care. Fewer than half of all hospitals that offer maternity care and participated in the survey received a High Performing designation.
“When expectant parents are considering their options for welcoming a baby to the world, the Best Hospitals for Maternity Care are designed to help them identify hospitals that excel in delivering babies for uncomplicated pregnancies,” said Ben Harder, chief of health analysis and managing editor at U.S. News. “A hospital that has earned a High Performing designation may be a good option for parents, in consultation with their medical provider, to consider.”
