Nationally Recognized for Delivering Superior Ob-Gyn Outcomes

Temple University Hospital announced today it has been recognized as a five-star recipient for vaginal delivery for the fifth year in a row (2019-2023) according to information released by Healthgrades, a leading resource consumers use to find a hospital or doctor. This five-star distinction reflects Temple University Hospital’s commitment to consistently delivering the best care possible placing the organization in the upper echelon of hospitals for Ob-Gyn care nationwide.

This quality award is based on patient outcomes.  The Healthgrades analysis revealed variation in care across the nation’s Ob-Gyn programs, making the ability to choose high-quality care more important than ever.  Patients treated at five-star rated hospitals for vaginal delivery (or, natural childbirth) have, on average, a 45.1% lower risk of a complication, than if treated at a one-star rated facility.*
