225 hospitals that are among the best for maternity care, 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. Hospitals were categorized as either four-ribbon or five-ribbon facilities. The second highest rating category — four ribbons — includes 225 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 225 hospitals that received the four-ribbon ranking from Newsweek, organized by state.
