Mount Nittany Medical Center has been named one of America’s Best Maternity Hospitals 2023 by Newsweek. This recognition underscores the excellent care and support provided to expectant mothers and their families by Mount Nittany Health’s dedicated Women and Children’s Services unit.

"I am absolutely thrilled to see the exceptional dedication and compassionate care provided by the staff of Women and Children’s Services being recognized," said Tiffany Cabibbo, DSc, MSN, RN, CENP, Executive Vice President, Patient Care Services and Chief Nursing Officer, Mount Nittany Health. "Their unwavering commitment to patient-centered care is truly commendable, and they exemplify Mount Nittany Health's mission of "Healthier people, stronger community."

According to Newsweek, the evaluation is based on three data sources: a nationwide online survey in which hospital managers and maternity healthcare professionals were asked to recommend leading maternity hospitals; medical key performance indicator data relevant to maternity care; and patient satisfaction data.

"We are honored to be recognized as one of America’s Best Maternity Hospitals for the second year in a row," said Jessica Lewis, MSN, RNC-OB, NE-BC, Manager, Women and Children’s Services, Mount Nittany Health. "This achievement is a testament to the dedication and expertise of the healthcare professionals in Women and Children’s Services who work tirelessly to ensure the well-being of mothers and their babies."

The largest unit of its kind in the region, the Joseph V. and Suzanne P. Paterno Women and Children’s Services Unit at Mount Nittany Medical Center welcomes nearly 1,300 babies to our community each year.

Mount Nittany Health offers a comprehensive range of resources to expecting families through a Hospital Education, Information, and Resources (HEIR) class and parent classes. The online class is held over Zoom and includes discussions about car seats, breastfeeding, and other relevant topics. A limited number of in person tours of the labor and delivery unit are available to those who register for the Zoom class. Held on the third Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm, each class concludes with a Q&A session; a breastfeeding class is held directly afterwards. More information is available at
