Cal Hospital Compare is pleased to recognize 108 hospitals on the 2022 Maternity Honor Roll. These hospitals met or surpassed the statewide target aimed at reducing births via C-section in first-time patients with low-risk pregnancies.
In 2015, the California Health and Human Services Agency began recognizing hospitals that meet the 23.9% statewide target of c-sections for low-risk births through its Maternity Honor Roll. Beginning this year, CHC changed the NTSV C-section rate threshold for honor roll hospitals from 23.9% to 23.6% to align with the Healthy People 2030 goals. This year’s award reflects calendar year 2021 hospital discharge and birth certificate data from 211 California hospitals that offer maternity services and participate in the California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative’s Maternal Data Center (CMQCC’s MDC).
