North Kansas City Hospital and Meritas Health has earned top honors on Newsweek’s list of America’s Best Maternity Hospitals 2022.
The honor recognizes the program for providing high-quality maternity care from pregnancy through birth, as well as postpartum care. The list is compiled with data from Statista and recognizes the top 350 hospitals for maternity care in the United States. The hospitals are divided into two performance categories: five-ribbon hospitals and four-ribbon hospitals. NKCH received a four-ribbon designation.
“This accolade is a result of great collaboration and dedication to excellence,” said Stephen Reintjes Sr., MD, president and CEO of North Kansas City Hospital and Meritas Health. “Our team of obstetricians, nurses, perinatology specialists and neonatology experts help deliver and care for more than 1,900 babies each year. With Children’s Mercy Kansas City, we are proud to provide the Northland’s only Level III neonatal intensive care unit.”
Newsweek’s evaluation is based on three factors: a nationwide online survey of maternity healthcare professionals; medical performance indicator data relevant to maternity care; and patient satisfaction data.
“This is an honor,” said Catherine Bonderer, senior director of Maternal Child Health at North Kansas City Hospital. “It shows our commitment to quality care through every stage of this special milestone for families.”
