Mercy Health – Tiffin Hospital was named recently to Newsweek’s 2020 list of Best Maternity Care Hospitals. The distinction recognizes facilities that have excelled in providing care to mothers, newborns and their families, as verified by the 2019 Leapfrog Hospital Survey. Best Maternity Care Hospitals is part of Newsweek’s Best Health Care series, powered by data from The Leapfrog Group.

“The OB teams at Mercy Health – Tiffin Hospital have been providing our community with the highest level of care for years and this recognition demonstrates that these providers rank with the nation’s best,” said Bob Baxter, president, Mercy Health – Toledo. “Our ministry has been providing high quality care to all in need for nearly 165 years and we will remain steadfast in our commitment to putting our patients first in all we do.”

“Best Maternity Care Hospitals showcases an elite group of hospitals from across the country,” said Nancy Cooper, Global Editor in Chief of Newsweek. “These facilities stand out for the care they provide to women and families, and for giving babies a strong start to life. Particularly in these uncertain times, we are honored to share this list of top-ranked facilities with Newsweek’s readership.”

Hospitals named as a Best Maternity Care Hospital have fully met The Leapfrog Group’s standards for maternity care on evidence-based, nationally standardized metrics. 
Mercy Health – Tiffin Hospital was one of fewer than 250 to receive the prestigious accolade. The full list of recipients appeared in the July 24 edition of Newsweek, available online and at newsstands nationwide.
