JRMC earned the award based on robust criteria including relevant clinical performance, patient satisfaction and the presence of appropriate accreditations. The birthing center has a long history of high marks from patients on surveys evaluating their experience and the quality of care received.

“We’ve thought for a long time that our JRMC Family BirthPlace is the best place to have a baby,” shared OB/GYN Dr. Emily Stromquist. “This sort of honor, along with objective evidence like our 99th percentile OB patient satisfaction scores feel like such a big thank you from the community.”

JRMC provides a full scope of obstetric and gynecologic services, including prenatal care, labor and delivery, postpartum support and specialized gynecologic surgery. JRMC is one of the few rural medical centers still offering labor and delivery services. The Jamestown community is also particularly unique in its access to provider choice. Not only are there skilled family practice providers caring for moms, but JRMC has come along to support those practices with the availability of 24/7 OB/GYN coverage.

Dr. Gregg McAdoo and Dr. Emily Stromquist joined JRMC in 2022. Both board certified OB/GYNs, their presence in the community expands both the confidence and options in JRMC obstetrical services.
