La Porte has been selected as one of the Best Maternity Hospitals in
the United States, one of only 13 Indiana hospitals selected. The selection was announced publicly on
May 11, 2022.
To ensure quality and validity of the ranking, Newsweek and the data firm Statista based the evaluation 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).
“There's nothing more joyful than the birth of a healthy baby. High quality maternity care from pregnancy through birth and even postpartum is key to the long-term health of both newborns and new mothers and we are so proud to be providing this to our community,” said Keith Nichols, Chief Executive Officer for Northwest Health – La Porte. “I also would like to congratulate our maternity team – our nurses, obstetricians and midwives – who are well known for delivering outstanding care. It’s gratifying to see their efforts recognized nationally.”
