Owosso, MI – Dec 6, 2022 – Memorial Healthcare, has been recognized as one of the nation’s leading hospitals for maternity care by US News & World Report. The hospital ranked in the top 20% of Michigan hospitals to receive a “high performing” score, which is the highest possible rating.
A leading online resource for hospital rankings and information, US News & World Report’s Best Hospitals for Maternity Care list recognizes hospitals across the country for providing high-quality care and experience for expected mothers and families.
To achieve a High Performing rating, a hospital had to score significantly higher than average on a combination of eight quality measures including C-section rates, newborn complication rates, breast milk feeding rates, early delivery rates and if a hospital offers vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC). Of the maternity data collected from 649 hospitals nationwide, only 297 (fewer than half) earned a High Performing rating.
