  1. Montefiore Medical Center, Bronx, N.Y. also got an F.
    Since LARCHMONT Women’s center on the post rd. delivers at Einstein I wish you would have included Montefiore in your top 5 so to speak.

  2. A lot of factors go into these ratings..as for Sound Shore I can only say that I broke my wrist two years ago and went to their emergency room during a blizzard..the took wonderful care of me and I healed very well.

  3. OMG and we think we’re getting the best care?

    That’s why I said you might as well deliver your baby at home, it’s probably safer for you and the baby!
