Each year, WomensChoiceAward.com names the top hospitals in the country for obstetrics.
Whether in a big city or a small town, some of these facilities go above and beyond when it comes to making sure both mother and baby have a positive and healthy experience when all is said and done.
And let’s face it, as the following article shows, when it comes to considerations about where you deliver your baby, it’s women’s opinions that matter most.
Here are the top five hospitals for babies in the U.S., and what your hospital might learn from them.
5. Hill Country Memorial Hospital (Fredericksburg, Texas)
At Hill Country Memorial Hospital, there is a separate area for women in labor. Women don’t have to be wheeled past terminal patients in order to give birth to their newborn. They have plenty of private delivery rooms, so those who want that never have to give up that privilege. In addition, this hospital offers sleeping quarters for loved ones who don’t want to leave the hospital.
Lesson learned: Hospitals would do well to consider the needs of the immediate family as well as the new mother.
