GREENWICH, Conn. -- Greenwich Hospital has received the 2017 Women’s Choice Award as one of "America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics" for the fourth year in a row.
The award recognizes Greenwich Hospital among the top 17 percent of hospitals in the nation to have a baby.
Anna Cerra, Greenwich Hospital's vice president of patient care services and chief nursing officer, said the hospital offers women in Connecticut and New York "the best possible birthing experience. Our compassionate and highly skilled doctors and nurses provide the full range of mother-baby care, including fertility, perinatal and neonatal services to handle all types of pregnancies and deliveries.”
More than 2,800 babies were born at Greenwich Hospital in 2016. The hospital also has a level IIIA neonatal intensive care unit for newborns who require specialized care.
Greenwich Hospital received the award by meeting the following criteria: presence of a level IIIA NICU; low rates of early elective deliveries; high patient safety rankings by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services; and high recommendation scores based on federal patient surveys.
The Women’s Choice Award is devoted to serving as a trusted referral service for women.
