The Best Doctors for Women in America

If you’re a woman, you need better health care now more than ever. You’re having children later, pregnancies are getting more complex and you’re living longer—resulting in more chronic conditions. That’s the conclusion from a new report from Healthgrades, the healthcare analysts, which concludes that “women, who are the most active healthcare consumer, need to stay on top of the trends to ensure that they are receiving the best care possible, regardless of their stage of life.”

That’s why their findings are so important. The Obstetrics and Gynecology Excellence Award™ from HealthGrades “recognizes hospitals for superior outcomes during and after childbirth and in surgeries that treat diseases and conditions of the female reproductive system.” In other words, if you have an issue, you’re likely to better treated there than anywhere else.

Not every state made the list. Some didn’t because their hospitals weren’t good enough. For many others, there was simply no data available. Read on to discover where your state landed. Your health depends on it. And to live your happiest and healthiest life, don’t miss these essential 50 Unhealthiest Habits on the Planet.
