Brigham and Women's Hospital | 100 Hospital and Health Systems with Great Women's Health Programs | 2017

Brigham and Women's Hospital (Boston). Brigham and Women's Hospital, a major teaching hospital of Boston-based Harvard Medical School, is an internationally known referral center that offers routine and complex gynecologic and obstetric care. U.S. News & World Report named Brigham and Women's the No. 4 hospital in the nation for gynecologic care in 2017. However, Brigham and Women's leadership in women's health dates back to 1832, when its antecedent, Boston Lying-In Hospital, was founded as one of the nation's first maternity hospitals. Over the last 180 years, Brigham and Women's has made significant strides in the field of women's health, launching one of the largest and longest-running studies of women's health in 1976 — the Nurse's Health Study — which included 122,000 women. The first mother to receive anesthesia during childbirth was a patient at Brigham and Women's, and noninvasive fetal heart monitoring was developed within its walls. Today, women's health continues to be one of the hospital's six centers of excellence, and is delivered across 150 outpatient practices as well as the main hospital. Brigham and Women's has also been recognized by CareChex as offering some of the safest women's healthcare in the nation and as a Best Hospital for Obstetrics from the Women's Choice Awards.
