Doctors Medical Center Receives Quality & Sustainability Award from CMQCCJun 13, 2023
The California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative (CMQCC) launched its Quality and Engagement Awards Program to recognize member hospitals that go above and beyond to provide high-quality care for California’s mothers, birthing people and their families.
Currently, nearly all California birthing hospitals are active CMQCC members and are using the Maternal Data Center to track maternity care performance and identify perinatal quality improvement opportunities. CMQCC Quality and Engagement Award recipients are recognized for having the highest levels of engagement with the quality improvement tools and programs.
CMQCC is a nationally recognized maternal quality improvement organization that focuses on improving hospital-based maternity care in California. CMQCC works collaboratively with stakeholders across the state to identify the key causes of maternal mortality and morbidity and, most importantly, develop tools to help hospitals improve maternal patient safety.
As a recipient of a Quality and Engagement Award, Doctors Medical Center is part of a community of 200+ CMQCC member hospitals, accounting for 99% of California’s delivery volume.
Doctors Medical Center is proud to receive the following award:
