Newsweek names UC Davis Medical Center one of ‘America’s Best Maternity Hospitals’


UC Davis Medical Center has been named one of “America’s Best Maternity Hospitals 2024” by Newsweek magazine and the global market research and consumer data firm Statista.

The distinction recognizes 404 hospitals that provide exceptional care to mothers, newborns and their families. It is the fifth consecutive year UC Davis Medical Center has been included on this list.

The ranking, announced earlier this month, is based on a nationwide online survey of hospital managers and medical professionals as well as publicly available data from hospital surveys addressing the patient experience. Data on hospital quality metrics was provided from several sources, including nonprofit hospital accreditation organization The Joint Commission, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, and the Health Resources and Services Administration.

“Congratulations to our dedicated team of doctors, nurses and staff for the excellence they provide to every mother and baby,” said Brenda Chagolla, associate chief nursing officer at UC Davis Health. “Our labor and delivery team provides the highest standards of care to all who are on their pregnancy journey, and we are proud to receive this recognition.”

The full list of recipients appears in Newsweek online and in print.
