CHA named to Newsweek’s List of Best Maternity Hospitals 2024 Recognized for excellence in reducing pregnancy risk F or the fourth year, Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA), a community health system serving Cambridge, Somerville and Boston’s metro-north communities, has been named to Newsweek’s list of Best Maternity Hospitals. This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. High-quality maternity care provided from pregnancy through birth and postpartum is key to the long-term health of newborns and women who give birth. Given that maternity care is a major component of health care, Newsweek and Statista have partnered to identify America’s Best Maternity Hospitals in 2024. The awards list can currently be viewed on Newsweek’s website. This honor reflects CHA’s extensive efforts to reduce pregnancy risk and support equitable patient care. CHA employs a model of collaborative interprofessional care, with a focus on shared decision making with patients. 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 USA • Medical Key Performance Indicators on hospitals with a focus on indicators relevant to maternity care • Results from patient surveys “We are thrilled to be recognized for the fourth year in a row for Newsweek’s prestigious award,” said CHA’s chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Tara Singh, MD. “We strongly believe in our vision to provide excellent care for all, and we thank our patients for recognizing our team’s hard work.” Albert Santana safely makes it to first base during GBL action against Revere. By Joe McConnell I n a rebuilding season with a new head coach, the Everett High School baseball team (4-12) keeps on working, never giving up, and last Friday against host Charlestown they were rewarded with their fourth win of the year, 10-2. “We were able to capitalize on the small things to come away with the victory,” said first-year varsity coach Malik Love after the Charlestown game. Nordeivy Santana pitched five innings to secure his first win of the year. He issued six walks, while striking out seven. He also contributed to the offense with a double. Derek Soper chipped in with two singles, including one in the first. “We have a bunch of players who can play multiple positions this year, and we’re very young with only three seniors – Alex Lara, Justin Longmore and Enrico Vega – on the active varsity roster,” said Love. “Thery are learning how to play situational baseball, while gaining considerable experience on this level.” After the win over Charlestown, the Tide lost to Revere (7-2) and Medford (6-3) earlier this week. The game against the Mustangs was impressive for the young Everett players. They played the game on the road at Medford’s Playstead Park, and the youthful visitors, not Tide pitcher Alex Lara lets one rip during action against Revere Monday. (Advocate photo by Emily Harney) feeling intimidated, scored three times in the top of the first. “We beat ourselves again, but this is a process, and all I can ask from this group is to compete every day, and hang in there,” said Love, “which they did.” Isaiah Goffigan pitched the first five innings against the Mustangs, striking out four. Armani Negron whiffed two over the final two frames. Longmore tripled in Lara and Jevaun Berberena in the productive first. Albert Santana singled over shortstop to produce the team’s third run of the stanza. The Everett boys have four regular season games left on the schedule, including today’s (May 17) non-league contest against Lowell at Glendale Park, starting at 4:15 p.m. They will then be taking on host Greater Lawerence Monday afternoon at 4 p.m., followed by rematches with Charlestown two days later at Glendale (May 22, 4 p.m.) and Greater Lawrence next Friday (May 24, 6 p.m.), also at Glendale.
