RALEIGH, N.C. (May 15, 2024) – WakeMed Raleigh Campus, WakeMed Cary Hospital and WakeMed North Hospital received top recognition as leading maternity care hospitals in the U.S., according to a national ranking by Newsweek based on data from Statista.

The distinction recognizes WakeMed as a proven leader in providing the highest level of quality care for all birthing people and their babies.

Newsweek’s 2024 list of America’s Best Maternity Hospitals spotlights the leading 404 hospitals in the field of maternity in the U.S. that have fully met Statista’s standards for maternity care on evidence-based, nationally standardized metrics. Of the 404 hospitals recognized, the WakeMed health system was among the 168 hospitals to receive a five-ribbon ranking—the highest rating category.

The recognition was based on a nationwide survey of medical professionals, key performance indicators and patient survey results. The full methodology can be found here.

WakeMed delivers more babies than any other health system in Wake County — more than 9,000 new lives each year. With three full-service hospitals offering a patient-focused birthing experience, WakeMed provides personalized care for the entire family, state-of-the-art facilities, expert care for babies needing extra help, lactation/feeding support, childbirth and parenting classes and access to WakeMed doula services.

WakeMed North Hospital’s data was incorporated into tabulations with WakeMed Raleigh Campus because the two facilities operate under the same CMS license. For more information, visit www.wakemed.org/care-and-services/womens/pregnancy-and-childbirth/.
