Our fabulous midwifery faculty practice team:
Our faculty practice midwives are on track to catch 650 babies this year at the University of Utah Hospital! That’s more than last year by over 100 births. In addition, the the BirthCare HealthCare practice has an overall patient satisfaction score in the top 95%ile. This is a reflection of our Patient Satisfaction score as measured by the Press Ganey surveys patients receive after their visit with our midwives.
