The inaugural edition recognized Elmer among the top one-third of hospitals evaluated, receiving the highest rating U.S. News awards for maternity care
Elmer, New Jersey. – March 25, 2022 – Inspira Medical Center Elmer, part of Inspira Health, has been recognized as High Performing in Maternity Care (Uncomplicated Pregnancy) by U.S. News & World Report. This is the first time U.S. News has published a list of Best Hospitals for Maternity Care.
To be recognized among the Best Hospitals for Maternity Care, hospitals had to excel on multiple quality metrics that matter to expectant families, including complication rates, C-sections, whether births were scheduled too early in pregnancy, and how successfully each hospital supported breastfeeding. Only one-third of the hospitals evaluated by U.S. News for maternity care earned a ‘High Performing’ rating.
“All families deserve to be informed on how hospitals perform on key indicators of quality, which is why U.S. News has compiled and published a trove of maternal health data from hospitals across the country,” said Ben Harder, managing editor and chief of health analysis at U.S. News & World Report. “The hospitals we’ve recognized as High Performing meet a high standard in caring for patients with uncomplicated pregnancies.”
Inspira Medical Center Elmer earned a “High Performing” rating in Best Hospitals for Maternity, the highest rating U.S. News awards for this type of care.
“Inspira Medical Center Elmer is honored to receive this national recognition as a best hospital for maternity. Particularly amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this is truly a remarkable recognition of our team’s unwavering commitment to patient safety and quality care,” said Elizabeth Sheridan, chief administrative officer for Inspira Medical Centers Elmer and Vineland. “The arrival of a newborn is a special milestone for families, and this award is a testament to our team’s commitment to provide a high-quality, compassionate birthing experience for patients. It’s a privilege to serve our community, and we look forward to continuing to elevate our maternity services across our organization.
Unique to the U.S. News site, participating hospital profiles are robust and include a variety of relevant offerings for parents-to-be, including key measures of safety, alongside services and amenities such as private rooms and availability of child birthing classes.
The evaluation looks at hospital data only related to uncomplicated pregnancies, not high-risk pregnancies. Participating hospitals responded to a survey from the U.S. News health analysis team in spring of 2021 that reflects data from 2019. Participation was voluntary. U.S. News anticipates updating Best Hospitals for Maternity in summer of 2022, to coincide with the release of the 2022-23 Best Hospitals for Procedures & Conditions ratings.
