Capital Health Medical Center – Hopewell was named among the best in the nation for maternity services, according to the latest U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals for Maternity list.
This is the first time U.S. News has published a list of Best Hospitals for Maternity.
Capital Health is one of 15 hospitals in New Jersey and the only hospital in the greater Mercer and Bucks County area to earn this recognition.
To be recognized among the Best Hospitals for Maternity, Capital Health’s Maternity Services Program excelled on multiple quality metrics that matter to expectant families, including complication rates, C-sections, whether births are scheduled too early in pregnancy, and how successfully each hospital supports breastfeeding.
Only one-third of the hospitals evaluated for maternity care earned ‘High Performing’ status, the highest-ranking U.S. News award for that type of care.
The Maternity Services Program at Capital Health Medical Center – Hopewell makes up the most complete maternity facility in the area.
From routine deliveries to high-risk needs, staff at the Josephine Plumeri Birthing Center provide a full range of prenatal, obstetrical, postpartum, and neonatal care options to make sure new families have the greatest chance for healthy beginnings.
The designated Regional Perinatal Center provides level III neonatal care, as well as in-house coverage by obstetricians, midwives, neonatologists, perinatologists, and anesthesiologists 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
