The Christ Hospital Named to Newsweek’s Best Maternity Hospitals 2023 List

The Christ Hospital was Named a Five Ribbon Maternity Hospital

CINCINNATI (May 10, 2023) – The Christ Hospital has been named to Newsweek’s America’s Best Maternity Hospitals 2023 list. This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The complete list can be found on Newsweek’s website.

Newsweek and Statista invited more than 10,000 medical professionals to participate in the survey. Only 384 winners were recognized on the Best Maternity Hospitals 2023 list. The Christ Hospital was one listed as 1 of only 159 five ribbon hospitals in the country. The honor comes after the expansion of the Level III Maternity and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for newborns and their parents at our main campus. The enhanced NICU allows The Christ Hospital to provide its exceptional care to even younger babies and those born with serious illnesses, along with mothers who are at higher risk during pregnancy and delivery.

“We are honored to be included on Newsweek’s America’s Best Maternity Hospitals 2023 list,” said Debbie Hayes, President and CEO of The Christ Hospital Health Network. “Families continue to choose The Christ Hospital Health Network to provide exceptional healthcare and experiences to moms and their newborns with the expansion of the Level III NICU. Our medical team, clinical professionals and support staff prove we have everything it takes to create a safe welcoming environment for newborns and their parents.”

“We continue our commitment to women’s health as the demand continues to grow in our region,” said Leanne Olshavsky, MD, medical director of women’s health at The Christ Hospital Health Network. “This recognition only happens through the hard work of our team members by remaining a destination for families to give birth.”

Newsweek and Statista 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 e.g., midwives, neonatal and OB/GYNs were asked to recommend leading maternity hospitals in the U.S.

-Hospital Quality Metric: Metrics relevant to maternity care from a variety of public sources focusing on indicators relevant to maternity care.

-Results from patient satisfaction surveys: Publicly available data from hospital patient surveys used to analyze patient experience.
