Altru the Only Hospital in North Dakota Recognized 

Grand Forks, N.D. - Altru has been awarded on Newsweek’s list of America’s Best Maternity Hospitals 2023. This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.  

“Our babies are our some of our most precious patients,” said Dr. Josh Deere, president of Altru Health System. “Mothers in northeastern North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota can count on our teams to deliver the best care in the region. Thank you for your continuing to choose us for your family’s care.”  

Altru Hospital is the only hospital in North Dakota to be recognized on Newsweek’s list.  

“We are grateful to our team for helping us earn this recognition,” said Dr. Deere. “Our team is dedicated to the safest, highest quality of care for our mothers and babies.”   

The awards list was announced earlier this month and can currently be viewed on Newsweek’s website. 

Three data sources were used for the evaluation: 

  • Nationwide online survey: Health care professionals and hospital managers with knowledge about maternity processes e.g., neonatal and perinatal doctors, nurses and midwives were asked to recommend leading maternity hospitals in the US 
  • Medical KPIs on hospitals with a focus on indicators relevant to maternity care  
  • Results from patient surveys 

Newsweek and Statista invited over 10,000 medical professionals to participate in the survey. Only 384 winners were recognized on the Best Maternity Hospitals 2023 list.
