JFK Medical Center Awarded the Labor and Delivery 5-Star Excellence Award and Named in the Top 10% in the Nation by Healthgrades


JFK Medical Center is the recipient of the Healthgrades 2017 Labor and Delivery Excellence Award™ and a 5-Star rating, according to Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals. This distinction places JFK Medical Center in the top 10% of all hospitals evaluated for the exceptional care of mothers during labor and delivery.

"Being in the top 10% of hospitals evaluated for Labor and Delivery, is something to be very proud of," says Wayne Steinbeck, M.D., Chairman of the department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. "Our physicians and nurses average more than 20 years of experience in the field and, when you combine that expertise and knowledge with our core values and a team approach, there are few situations we can’t manage."

To help consumers evaluate and compare hospital performance in labor and delivery, Healthgrades analyzed patient outcome data for virtually every hospital in the 17 states that provide all-payer state data for years 2013 through 2015.

"One of the first and most important decisions a parent can make for their new baby is selecting a high-quality hospital for their delivery," said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Healthgrades. "Consumers can take advantage of the plethora of information available about quality outcomes when researching and then ultimately selecting a hospital for their loved ones."
