Smart Care California 2016 Achievement Award

Tulare Regional Medical Center has received the 2016 award for achieving the Healthy People 2020 goal for low-risk, first-birth Cesarean sections (C-sections). By reaching this goal in 2015, our team is delivering safer and more affordable care for Californians.  This award is presented by the California Health and Human Services Agency. 

 To achieve this award a California hospital must achieve a Cesarean section rate of 23.9 percent or lower for low-risk, first-birth deliveries.

 This is further evidence of HCCA/TRMC’s pursuit for higher quality care in our OB and pediatric services
