Newsweek has released its third annual list of best maternity hospitals in the U.S., and several North Carolina hospitals made the list, including six earning top rank.

The ranking is based on a nationwide online survey of hospital managers and medical professionals (regarding areas like perinatal care and operative obstetrics) as well as publicly available data from hospital surveys addressing the patient experience (including topics such as cleanliness and communication about medication).

Data on hospital quality metrics—like the number of elective deliveries and level of personnel vaccination—was provided from several sources, including nonprofit hospital accreditation organization The Joint Commission, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, and the Health Resources and Services Administration.

Here are the top ranked maternity hospitals in North Carolina:

Atrium Health Cleveland (Shelby)

Cone Health Moses Cone Hospital (Greensboro)

Mission Hospital McDowell (Marion)

UNC REX Hospital (Raleigh)

WakeMed Cary Hospital

WakeMed Raleigh Campus
