PSMC recognized nationally for Best Maternity Care

Phoebe Sumter Medial Center was recently named 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.

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. This includes lower rates of early elective delivery, NTSV C-section, and episiotomy, as well as compliance with process measures including newborn bilirubin screening prior to discharge and blood clot prevention techniques for mothers delivering via C-section.

“We are honored to be recognized as one of the Best Maternity Care Hospitals in the nation. Being included on this list, along with Dr. Mustafa joining Phoebe Obstetrics & Gynecology here in Americus, is a testament to our commitment and dedication in meeting the needs of moms during routine and more challenging pregnancies,” said Brandi Lunneborg, Phoebe Sumter Medical Center CEO.

The birthing center at Phoebe Sumter Medical Center offers expert care and advanced technologies with private, luxurious suites that allow mothers to experience labor, delivery, recovery and treatment for postpartum (LDRP) in the same room. The hospital has more than 400 births annually.

Phoebe Obstetrics & Gynecology is located on Phoebe Sumter’s campus.
