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. 

The survey process will involve the following steps:

  • The facility applies for a site survey via an online application.
  • ACOG follows up with the facility and provides several documents, including a contract and online pre-visit questionnaire, for the facility to complete. The facility will also be invited to send policies and procedures related to the provision of maternal care.
  • ACOG works with the facility to schedule the site visit. The anticipated length of the site visit is estimated at 1 to 1.5 days.
  • Surveyors conduct the site visit.
  • Within 30 days of the site visit, ACOG sends a report to the facility, which subsequently would need to be submitted with its application for level designation to the Texas Department of State Health Services.

We look forward to working in collaboration with nurses, midwives, physicians, and hospitals in Texas to make a significant impact on the quality of care for Texan families.
