California HealthCare Foundation To Launch Plan Aimed at Reducing C-Section Rates in the State
The California HealthCare Foundation will launch a plan early this year that aims to reduce cesarean section rates in hospitals across California. According to a report released last year, more than 27% of healthy women in the state deliver via C-section. A reduction in C-section rates could lead to cost savings and healthier outcomes for women and infants.
