Washington State's Only Accredited Birth Centers

Puget Sound Birth Centers in Kirkland and Renton are now accredited by the Commission for the Accreditation of Birth Centers. This national organization sets rigorous standards for birth centers, equivalent to the Joint Commission standards for hospitals, but tailored specifically for freestanding birth centers. Puget Sound Birth Centers in Kirkland and Renton are the only accredited birth centers in Washington State, and two of the 94 accredited birth centers in the US and Canada. It feels great to get an official stamp of approval for the high standards we set for ourselves.
