With an experienced medical staff and a long history of training both medical students and residents, Baptist Women’s Hospital is an excellent choice for high-quality and compassionate OB-GYNs. Baptist Women’s Hospital consistently performs favorably to benchmarks provided by the National Perinatal Information Center (NPIC) and the Council of Women’s and Infants’ Specialty Hospitals (CWISH).
