Piedmont Athens Regional has been named to Newsweek’s list of Best Maternity Hospitals 2022. This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The awards list was announced on May 11, 2022 and can currently be viewed on Newsweek’s website.

Newsweek and Statista developed a complex methodology to ensure the quality and validity of the ranking. Three data sources were used for the evaluation:

  • Nationwide online survey: hospital managers and health care professionals with knowledge about maternity processes e.g. Midwives, neonatal and OB/GYNs were asked to recommend leading maternity hospitals in the US
  • Medical KPIs on hospitals with a focus on indicators relevant to maternity care
  • Results from patient surveys

Newsweek and Statista invited over 10,000 medical professionals to participate in the survey. Only 350 winners across the U.S. were recognized on the Best Maternity Hospitals 2022 list.

Piedmont Athens Regional is ecstatic to be recognized on Newsweek’s list of Best Maternity Hospitals 2022.

“To be recognized as a Best Maternity Hospital by Newsweek and Statista is a tremendous honor,” said Jeremiah Bame, chief nursing officer for Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center. “This award is a testament to the compassionate care our staff provides for women delivering at Piedmont Athens and their babies.”
