We’re proud to announce that several UW Ob-Gyn clinics and practice groups earned awards for excellent service recently!

Three UW Ob-Gyn clinics earned 2017 UW Health Patient and Family Experience Clinic Team awards, as selected based on patient feedback! All three clinics scored in the top 10 percent of specialty clinics across UW Health for the patient survey item “Staff worked together to care for you.” Thanks to the teams at the following clinics for their commitment to hard work, exceptional patient care, and cohesive team-based approaches:

  • UW Ob-Gyn Arboretum Clinic
  • UW Ob-Gyn Division of Gynecologic Oncology/UW Carbone Cancer Center Gyn Onc Clinic
  • UW Ob-Gyn Gynecology & Gynecologic Subspecialties Urogynecology Clinic

Congratulations also goes to the UW Health Nurse Midwifery practice! Our nurse-midwives were listed as a best practice - Triple Aim Achievement by the American College of Nurse Midwives 2017 Benchmarking Project!

Triple Aim Best Practice recognizes practices which meet the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s three goals of improving patient experience, reducing cost of care, and improving the health of populations. UW Health Nurse Midwifery Service was named best Practice for the rate of epidurals used for pain relief during labor, as well as their VBAC success rate.
