Spectrum Health Big Rapids Hospital has been recognized as one of the nation’s best maternity hospitals, according to the inaugural list of U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals for Maternity.


“We’re honored to join some of the best hospitals in the nation for maternity care and the

entire team provides to the families we serve,”
said Andrea Leslie, president of Spectrum
Health Big Rapids, Reed City, United and Kelsey Hospitals.


Big Rapids Hospital is one of 12 hospitals in Michigan that U.S. News recognized for high performance in maternity care. Out of the 2,700 hospitals across the United States that

Spectrum Health Butterworth and Blodgett, as well as Zeeland Community Hospital were also recognized for high performance in maternity care.
