STOCKBRIDGE — Piedmont Henry Hospital, Piedmont Fayette Hospital and Piedmont Newnan Hospital have earned global recognition from Newsweek in the publication’s recently released World’s Best Maternity Hospitals list for 2020.
Newsweek partnered with The Leapfrog Group, a national nonprofit organization that reports on the safety and quality performance of U.S. health care facilities, to develop a list of 231 of the world’s best maternity hospitals, selecting hospitals in 36 states.
A group of national experts advised Leapfrog on standards for excellence in maternity care, including achieving low rates of C-section, episiotomy and early elective deliveries, and following crucial protocols to protect mothers and babies.
“Piedmont Henry is proud of this recognition. This global ranking is a reflection of our relentless commitment to putting our patients first and providing the best maternity care to the people in our community,” said Kenya Cottrell, director of Women’s Services at Piedmont Henry.
According to Newsweek, the hospitals on their World’s Best Maternity Hospitals list are an elite group demonstrating excellence in maternity care, and delivering healthy outcomes for both mom and baby.
“This World’s Best Maternity Hospitals list is influenced by important quality and safety measures,” Cottrell said. “I’m very proud of the women’s services team at Piedmont Henry. Each day, our staff goes above and beyond to ensure our patients receive high-quality, patient-centered care, and rankings like this make clear our hard work and dedication.”
