The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists provides survey services for Levels II, III, and IV hospitals that provide maternity care.
During the site surveys, ACOG will assess the facility’s compliance with the Texas Hospital Level of Care Designations for Maternal Care, 25 TAC, Chapter 133, Subchapter K, §§133.201 - 133.210.
At no additional fee, ACOG’s team of experts will offer optional confidential consultative feedback that includes highlights and recommendations as part of the site visit.
