Friday, July 16, 2010
Women and Infants Hospital of Rhode Island has been recognized as the 26th best in the nation for gynecology, according to a ranking of the best hospitals in the July 27 edition of U.S. News and World Report.
The special issue, titled Best Hospitals 2010-11, examines 152 hospitals and other medical centers in 16 areas of specialty. U.S. News and World Report said Women and Infants stood out because it had one of the highest levels of nurse staffing and had a significantly good reputation with physicians.
“This recognition truly is a testament to the skills and dedication of our entire staff,” said Constance A. Howes, president and chief executive officer of Women & Infants. “For well more than a century, Women & Infants has been recognized as a leading provider of obstetric care. Being named one of America’s best hospitals in gynecology recognizes Women & Infants’ full breadth of services in areas such as reproductive endocrinology, urogynecology and gynecologic oncology.”
Women and Infants is one of the leading hospitals in the country for women and newborn children. The hospital has the seventh largest obstetrical services in the country, with more than 9,000 deliveries each year. Last year, it opened the largest single-family neonatal intensive care unit in the United States.
