HOUSTON (Feb. 06, 2018) – The Women’s Center at Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital has been included in Becker’s Hospital Review’s list of 100 U.S. hospitals and health systems with great women's health programs in 2017.
“This inclusion is a great acknowledgement of the commitment to women’s health needs that our physicians and staff show on a daily basis,” says Susie Distefano, CEO of Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital. “This important recognition is a result of the hard work and commitment from all of our Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital staff and affiliated UTHealth physicians who continuously work to provide our patients with the highest quality of care.”
To develop this list, the Becker's Healthcare editorial team selected hospitals based on national rankings and awards received from several institutions, including U.S. News & World Report, CareChex, Women's Choice Award Best Breast Centers and Baby-Friendly USA.
According to Becker’s, the hospitals included on this list support award-winning programs in women's health, breast cancer diagnosis and treatment, gynecology and women's heart care. This list also recognizes hospitals with forward-thinking labor and delivery departments and recognition for maternity care. Many are high volume referral centers for their community, serving women with health needs across the spectrum.
Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital is recognized as a Baby-Friendly® designated birth facility, and also contains one of only four Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Units in the state.
The Women’s Center at Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital offers a broad range of maternity, gynecological, and breast health services. A woman’s health needs are unique and the affiliated team reflects a deep commitment to their patients, a commitment to advanced treatments and a dedication to health education.
