U.S. News only looked at uncomplicated pregnancies, meaning they didn’t look at high-risk ones. The five different factors they used to rank hospitals are:

  • C-section rates in low-risk women
  • Newborn complications
  • Option for vaginal births after a C-section
  • Rate of exclusive breast milk feeding
  • Scheduled early deliveries

“The primary goal of Best Hospitals for Maternity is to help healthcare consumers, in consultation with their healthcare professional, identify hospitals that provide high-quality maternity care for uncomplicated pregnancies and to provide them with information highly sought after by expecting parents.”

U.S. News & World Report said in their methodology report

We hope Thomas Hospital’s good news makes you feel confident and safe during your pregnancy and labor.
