(MAY 24, 2022, Norwalk) – Fisher-Titus has been awarded on Newsweek’s list of Best Maternity Hospitals 2022 – only one of 350 winners recognized nationally. This is the third year in a row they have received this recognition and is the only facility in the region to receive this designation.
Newsweek, along with Statista, the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider, developed a complex methodology to ensure the quality and validity of the ranking. Three data sources were used for the evaluation:
- Nationwide online survey: hospital managers and health care professionals with knowledge about maternity processes including midwives, neonatal and OB/GYNs were asked to recommend leading maternity hospitals in the U.S.
- Medical key predictive indexes on hospitals with a focus on indicators relevant to maternity care including rates of Cesarean births
- Results from patient satisfaction surveys
“Receiving this award for a third year in a row is a true testament to the high-quality maternity care from pregnancy to birth to post-partum our Birthing Center provides. We know this is key to the long-term health of mothers and babies,” said Brent Burkey, MD, president and CEO of Fisher-Titus. “It’s important to us that we do all we can to provide babies born at Fisher-Titus with a strong start to life.”
