Newsweek America's Best Maternity Hospitals 2024Lakewood Ranch Medical Center (LWRMC) has for the third consecutive year earned a place on Newsweek’s list of America’s Best Maternity Hospitals 2024. The award list was revealed on May 8, 2024.

Lakewood Ranch Medical Center is proud of the high-quality maternity care offered every day in the Women’s Center. This recognition highlights the superior services offered at LWRMC to women through all stages of maternity care. Given that obstetrical services are a major component of healthcare, Newsweek and Statista, the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider, have partnered for the third time to identify America’s Best Maternity Hospitals in 2024.

The ranking is based on three pillars:

  1. Nationwide Online Survey: Healthcare professionals and hospital managers with knowledge about maternity processes (e.g., neonatal and perinatal doctors, nurses, and midwives) were asked to recommend leading maternity hospitals in the U.S.
  2. Patient Experience Survey: Survey of the overall patient experience in the hospital.
  3. Hospital Quality Metrics: Indicators relevant to maternity care were considered.

“It’s a top priority at Lakewood Ranch Medical Center to provide high-quality healthcare for moms and their babies," says Andy Guz, Chief Executive Officer at Lakewood Ranch Medical Center. “I’m grateful for our team of doctors and nurses in the Women’s Center. Receiving this award demonstrates the dedication of our Women’s Center team who provide outstanding support to our patients during this important time in their lives."
