Brookwood Baptist Women's Center Only Alabama Hospital Awarded on Newsweek's Best Maternity Hospitals 2022 List

May 11, 2022

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – May 11, 2022 – Brookwood Baptist Medical Center has been awarded on Newsweek’s list of Best Maternity Hospitals 2022. This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The awards list was announced on May 11, 2022 and can currently be viewed on Newsweek’s website.

Out of the thousands of hospitals that were a part of our comprehensive evaluation, only the top 5.8% (350) have been recognized. Of those 350 hospitals named, Brookwood Baptist is the only hospital in the state of Alabama to make the list.

“This is a tremendous accomplishment and a reflection of the hard work and dedication of our physicians and staff to delivering outstanding patient care,” said Jeremy Clark, CEO of Brookwood Baptist Medical Center.

Newsweek and Statista developed a complex methodology to ensure the quality and validity of the ranking. Three data sources were used for the evaluation:

  • Nationwide online survey: hospital managers and health care professionals with knowledge about maternity processes e.g. Midwives, neonatal and OB/GYNs were asked to recommend leading maternity hospitals in the US
  • Medical KPIs on hospitals with a focus on indicators relevant to maternity care
  • Results from patient surveys

Newsweek and Statista invited over 10,000 medical professionals to participate in the survey. Only 350 winners were recognized on the Best Maternity Hospitals 2022 list.
