HCA/HealthONE’s Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center announced today that it has achieved Healthgrades 2018 Labor and Delivery Excellence Award™. According to Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals, this distinction places Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center within the top 10 percent of all hospitals evaluated for the exceptional care of mothers during labor and delivery.

The Labor and Delivery Excellence Award™ recognizes hospitals for superior care of women during and after childbirth.
The award is based on complication outcomes for live-born single births delivered via vaginal delivery and live-born single and twin births delivered via C-section.

Women who deliver at these nationally recognized hospitals have a lower risk of experiencing a complication during their hospital stay. P/SL was the only hospital recognized in Colorado for the 2018 award.
