Southcoast Ranked Among Top 10 Percent of Hospitals Evaluated for Maternity Care

Southcoast Health recently learned it has achieved the Healthgrades® 2014 Maternity Care Excellence Award – the only hospital in Massachusetts to do so. This unique distinction places Southcoast within the top 10 percent of all hospitals in the nation evaluated for exceptional care provided to mothers –  during and after childbirth – and to their newborn children.

"Southcoast is very proud to be recognized by Healthgrades for our industry-leading level of maternity care," said Keith Hovan, President and CEO of Southcoast Health. "The great skill and dedication demonstrated by our staff, led by Dr. Patrick Nugent, is not just of the highest quality in this region, but clearly state–and nation-wide, as well. We take great pride in delivering this level of care for each and every birth, and will continue to go to great lengths to exceed our patients’ expectations. For these reasons, we know that expectant mothers and newborns from our community will continue to receive world-class care at Southcoast without having to travel far from home."

Healthgrades is the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals.

Each year Southcoast Health delivers nearly 3,500 babies between its three hospitals. Maternity services at Southcoast Health offer a family-centered approach that provides the right combination of state-of-the-art technology and expert, compassionate care.
