ARLINGTON – Newsweek has ranked Medical City Arlington among America’s Best Maternity Hospitals for the second year in a row. The national recognition rates the 433-bed acute care facility among the top U.S. hospitals for high-quality maternity care.

The Newsweek evaluation is based on three data sources: a nationwide online survey in which hospital managers and maternity healthcare professionals (e.g., neonatal care providers and OB/GYNs) recommended leading maternity hospitals; key medical performance indicator data relevant to maternity care (e.g., a hospital's rate of cesarean births); and patient satisfaction data (e.g., how patients rated a hospital's medical staff for responsiveness and communication.)

“This prestigious recognition is yet another confirmation of the high-quality, patient-centered and compassionate care we provide for mothers and babies at our Medical City Women’s Hospital Arlington,” Medical City Arlington COO Skyler Reed says. “We are honored that families trust us as their destination of choice for maternity care in Arlington and across Tarrant County.”

Medical City Women’s Hospital Arlington is a 125,000 square foot dedicated women’s hospital located on the campus of Medical City Arlington. The hospital is state-designated as a Level III maternal care center, providing comprehensive care for complex, medical, surgical and obstetrical conditions for pregnant and postpartum patients.

Also this year, Medical City Arlington was voted Best Hospital to Have a Baby in Tarrant County by readers of DFW Child Magazine. The hospital has consistently received several maternity-related awards from Healthgrades, including the Obstetrics and Gynecology Excellence Award.
