Latest Information Regarding Cesarean Delivery Rates
SCRMC is a leader when it comes to obstetrical care. We provide great value for our patients. We are a leader in quality, experience, and cost for obstetrical care. Regarding C-section rates, SCRMC is one of the lowest (lower is better) when compared to other hospitals in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Over the last three years our overall C-section rate has consistently stayed around 14%. Our primary rate (first time C-section) is approximately 5%. Of course there are other quality and safety factors that are monitored to track overall performance. I thought I would share this measure for comparison to the latest data.
