“Being the only hospital in New Mexico dedicated to women makes being named to The Best Hospitals for Maternity Care a proud moment for all of us,” said Amy Blasing, CEO of LWH. “It underscores our dedication to delivering the highest quality of maternity care to our patients, while ensuring both mom and baby are safe and well-cared for throughout their stay.”

Hospitals on the list offer a diverse range of maternal care services, including high-risk pregnancy care and neonatal intensive care. The Leapfrog Group is an independent national watchdog organization committed to health care quality and safety. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” grade to all general hospitals across the country and is updated every six months. It is the only hospital ratings program based exclusively on hospitals’ prevention of medical errors and other harms to patients in their care. To qualify for the Best Hospitals for Maternity Care list, hospitals had to receive a B letter grade or higher on the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade assessment for spring 2022.
