Vanderbilt Tullahoma-Harton Hospital (VTHH) has been named among the top maternity hospitals in the nation. Only five hospitals in Tennessee were included, with VTHH being the only hospital in Middle Tennessee to receive the distinction.
Money, a personal finance website, recently teamed up with the Leapfrog Group to develop the first Best Maternity Hospital ranking.
“This wonderful recognition is a testament to the compassionate, high-quality care provided by the whole team in our VTHH Women’s Center,” said Rich Ellis, President, VTHH. “This, in addition to having been the first in Coffee, Franklin, Lincoln and Bedford counties to receive a Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, is a credit to our team and providers.”
To compile its new list of the top hospitals in the country for maternity care, The Leapfrog Group used maternity care data from the 2022 Leapfrog Hospital Survey. 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 and meet criteria specific to providing maternity care.
