The prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.
“Being recognized on Newsweek’s list for Best Maternity Hospitals is entirely the result of our amazing doctors, nurses and staff, who we appreciate so much,” says Palomar Health President and CEO Diane Hansen. “We’re so thrilled to be recognized on this esteemed list and proud to offer award-winning care.”
As the largest public healthcare district in California with an 800 square-mile service area, Palomar Health is anchored by two state-of-the-art medical center campuses offering medical services in virtually all fields of medicine; including primary care, cardiovascular care, emergency services, trauma, cancer, orthopedics, women’s health, behavioral health, rehabilitation, pediatrics, neonatal intensive care as well as robotic and bariatric surgery.
Newsweek and Statista developed a complex methodology to ensure the quality and validity of the ranking. Three data sources were used for the evaluation:
* A nationwide online survey of hospital managers and health care professionals with knowledge about maternity processes, including midwives and neonatal and OB/GYNs
* Medical KPIs (key performance indicators) on hospitals with a focus on indicators relevant to maternity care
* Results from patient surveys
Newsweek and Statista invited over 10,000 medical professionals to participate in the survey. Nationwide, only 350 winners were recognized on the Best Maternity Hospitals 2022 list.
