Emanuel Medical Center Receives Maternity Award from CMQCC

May 26, 2022

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 California’s mothers, birthing people, and their families with the best start to life.

Currently, more than 200 California hospitals are active CMQCC members, using the agency’s Maternal Data Center to track maternity care performance and identify perinatal quality improvement opportunities. Recipients of a CMQCC Quality and Engagement Award are recognized for having the highest levels of engagement with the quality improvement tools and programs.


CMQCC is a nationally recognized maternal quality improvement group 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, develops tools to help hospitals improve maternal patient safety.

As a recipient of a Quality and Engagement Award, Emanuel Medical Center is a part of a community of 200+ CMQCC member hospitals, accounting for 98% of California’s delivery volume.

Emanuel Medical Center is proud to receive the following award:
