The Ventura County Medical Center has been recognized as one of 33 “high-performing” California hospitals for its maternity care services, according to a report by the California Hospital Assessment and Reporting Taskforce.

Titled “A Tale of Two Births: High- and Low-Performing Hospitals on Maternity Measures in California,” the report designates hospitals as “high performing” when they receive three or more superior or above-average scores, and no average or below-average scores. VCMC ranked superior for its C-Section and episiotomy rates, and above-average for its breastfeeding rate.
