The Woman’s Hospital of Texas has been named a recipient of the Healthgrades 2018 Specialty Excellence Awards in Obstetrics and Gynecology, Labor and Delivery, and Gynecologic Surgery.

These achievements recognize The Woman’s Hospital of Texas as one of the Top 5% of the nation for exceptional clinical outcomes while caring for women during and after childbirth and in procedures that treat diseases and conditions of the female reproductive system.
