MarinHealth Receives Bay Area Parent’s Gold and Silver Recognition for Hospital, Birth Center, and Pediatrics

Marin County-based hospital and ancillary clinics receive several awards from annual “Best of the Best” reader-voted survey.

MarinHealth is proud to announce it has received three awards from Bay Area Parent Magazine’s recently published “Best of the Best” annual reader survey. The awards include Gold recognition for “Best Hospital” and “Best Birth Center” and Silver recognition for “Best Doctor or Pediatrics Group” in the San Francisco/Marin region.

Each year, thousands of participants of Bay Area Parent’s “Best of the Best” survey nominate or vote for their favorite businesses from dozens of categories. These survey results have become a trusted source for Bay Area families when searching for the best family resources within their communities. Winners are based on the number of votes and categorized by industry and region – Silicon Valley, Peninsula, East Bay, or San Francisco/Marin.

MarinHealth Chief Executive Officer David Klein, MD, expressed his gratitude for the recognition, stating, “We’re proud to receive these awards consistently year after year from Bay Area Parent Magazine’s readers. It’s a wonderful endorsement from our community, and it underscores our dedication to delivering world-class care.”

MarinHealth’s pediatric and maternity care encompasses a variety of expert physicians, midwives, and other professionals who provide valuable services throughout the region to expectant parents and their newborns.
