“This statewide recognition is a testament to the teamwork and commitment of our staff to provide high-quality health care to community members,” states SBMC Hospital President, Douglas Kleam. “I am proud of their hard work in making significant progress to reduce the number of low-risk, first birth C-section deliveries. As a result of the reduction, there are healthier babies and mothers.”
CHHS announced the achievement awards on behalf of Smart Care California, a coalition of public and private health care purchasers that collectively purchase or manage care for more than 16 million people statewide – or 40 percent of all Californians. SBMC is only one of 111 hospitals to receive this honor.
While life-saving in some circumstances, unnecessary C-sections can pose serious risks to mothers—higher rates of hemorrhage, transfusions, infection, and blood clots—and babies—higher rates of infection, respiratory complications, and neonatal intensive care unit stays.
