Ochsner St. Anne Hospital was recognized as part of Newsweek’s list of Best Maternity Hospitals for 2023. Only 384 hospitals nationwide made the magazine’s annual list of Best Maternity Hospitals, which recognizes hospitals that excel in providing high-quality care to mothers and newborns. The list of hospitals is divided into two performance categories. St. Anne, the only hospital recognized in our region is included in the highest rating category of five ribbons which includes only 159 hospitals.
Newsweek’s ratings are based on three data sources: a national survey of hospital managers and maternity healthcare professionals that asked them to recommend top maternity hospitals; hospital performance data related to maternity care; and patient satisfaction data.
“We have worked very hard to create a culture where patients are empowered to have the birth experiences they want, with the highest standards of care and safety,” said Fernis LeBlanc, Chief Executive Officer – Ochsner Bayou Region. “I am proud to recognize our amazing staff for their constant efforts and ongoing teamwork.
St. Anne continues to prioritize patient care and experience in our new Family Birthing Center. The new rooms offer a more home-like, comfortable setting with state-of-the-art technology for monitoring mother and baby.
