Sinai Hospital Rated in Top Category in Newsweek's 2022 List of "America's Best Maternity Hospitals"


Baltimore, MD "“Sinai Hospital of Baltimore was recently recognized by Newsweek on its list of "America's Best Maternity Hospitals 2022." The team at Sinai Hospital earned a "five-ribbon" rating, the highest level of achievement from the news magazine.

"It is an honor to be recognized as one of the top maternity hospitals in the country," says Elizabeth Zadzielski, M.D., chair of obstetrics and gynecology at Sinai Hospital. "I am extremely proud of our entire team here at Sinai. It is essential, for the wellbeing of us all, that our mothers feel safe, secure and nurtured while in our care. We will continue our commitment to providing exceptional care and support to our patients and their families." 

Newsweek recognized the top 350 hospitals for maternity care in the United States (just under six percent of all eligible hospitals). Honorees are divided into two performance categories: five-ribbon hospitals and four-ribbon hospitals. Sinai Hospital was one of only three hospitals in the State of Maryland to achieve a five-ribbon rating, and the only hospital in Baltimore City, to earn this prestigious recognition.

Newsweek's 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) were asked to recommend leading maternity hospitals; medical key 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).
