Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center and Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital have both been recognized as 2022-2023 High Performing Hospitals in Maternity Care (Uncomplicated Pregnancy) by U.S. News & World Report. This is the highest award a hospital can earn for U.S. News’ Best Hospitals for Maternity Care.

U.S. News evaluated nearly 650 hospitals that provide high-quality labor & delivery services for uncomplicated pregnancies for its 2022-2023 Best Hospitals for Maternity Care.
