Tahoe Forest Hospital Named One of America's Best for Obstetrics

Tahoe Forest Health System’s Women and Family Center has been given the Women’s Choice Award for America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics. This award is given to hospitals that demonstrate extraordinary service in meeting the needs of women and their families, and set higher healthcare standards by appreciating the unique needs and preferences of female patients.


This is the third time Tahoe Forest Hospital has been named with the Women’s Choice Award for America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics.


“Our wonderful medical staff and hospital staff in the Women and Family Center strive to deliver excellent care—and to take exceptional care of moms, babies and families in our community,” said Harry Weis, Chief Executive Officer, Tahoe Forest Health System.  “They truly care about their patients, and this award is a great recognition of their skill, compassion and effectiveness.”


The award signifies that Tahoe Forest Hospital is in the top 17% of 2,815 U.S. hospitals offering obstetrics.



The methodology for America’s Best Hospital for Obstetrics Award is unique in that it combines national accreditations, Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey results and hospital outcome scores with primary research about women’s healthcare preferences. It is the only award recognizing excellence in obstetric services based on robust criteria that consider patient satisfaction and clinical excellence.


The America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics distinction is based on the following specific criteria:

The Women and Family Center at Tahoe Forest Hospital provides comprehensive obstetrical and gynecological care. With a family-centered focus, its comprehensive perinatal services program provides individualized support services, teaching, referrals and consultations to expectant mothers and their families. These individualized care plans provide families with guidance for a healthy pregnancy and help prepare the entire family for labor and the arrival of a new baby.
