HOUSTON (January 13, 2022) - St. Luke’s Health - Sugar Land Hospital has earned recognition as one of the Best Hospitals for Maternity Care in America by Money powered by the Leapfrog Group. 

This national recognition speaks to the compassionate quality care provided by our maternity staff at St. Luke’s Health - Sugar Land hospital,” said Stephen Foster, president of St. Luke’s South Houston market. “

To compile its new list of the top hospitals in the country for maternity care, Money, in partnership with the Leapfrog Group, used maternity care data submitted via the 2022 Leapfrog Hospital Survey, which participants were required to submit by August 31, 2022.

To qualify for the list, eligible hospitals were required to carry an A or B letter grade on the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade assessment for spring 2022. Hospitals were also required to meet criteria specific to providing maternity care.

The 259 hospitals that made the cut are a combination of hospitals that provide care for uncomplicated pregnancies, as well as hospitals that provide care for high-risk deliveries, such as offering neonatal intensive care units, etc. 

About Money

Money was founded in 1972 as a print magazine that helped everyday people live richer lives by learning personal finance strategies that improved their bottom line. Over that time their mission has evolved to guide people to financial victories through up-to-date information, education, and tools. With the rising costs of healthcare, Money sees the direct correlation between quality of care and the lessened financial impact on the consumer, the better the care, the lower the overall, long-term costs.
