Leapfrog Group Releases Hospital Rates of Early Scheduled Deliveries

N.C. Women's Hospital and Rex Healthcare receive best ratings in North Carolina.

Both North Carolina Women's Hospital and Rex Healthcare reported zero percent rate of early deliveries in recent Leapfrog Group hospital rates.

The Leapfrog Group, a non-profit organization that compares hospitals on national standards of safety and quality, asked hospitals to voluntarily report their rate of elective deliveries before 39 completed weeks of pregnancy. The hospital’s rate of elective deliveries is the percentage of non-medically indicated (without a medical reason) births between 37 and 39 weeks gestation, that were delivered by caesarean section or induction.
