This infographic provides a snapshot of characteristics of rural and urban hospitals in the United States that provide obstetric services, as well as rural hospitals that recently closed their obstetric units. We used American Hospital Association (AHA) Survey data from 2010-2018 to describe U.S. hospitals, based on obstetric provision status.
