159 top maternity hospitals, state by state

Newsweek released its annual list of the best maternity hospitals in the U.S. this month. 

For the list, the magazine partnered with global market research and consumer data firm Statista to identify the 384 leading hospitals for maternity care in the U.S. The highest rating category — five ribbons — includes 159 institutions.

Newsweek said the ranking is based on an online survey in which neonatal care providers and OB-GYNs were asked to recommend leading maternity hospitals; medical key performance indicator data relevant to maternity care; and patient satisfaction data. More information about the methodology is available here.

Below are the 159 hospitals that received the five-ribbon ranking from Newsweek, organized by state.
