Adventist Health Clear Lake recognized for maternity care and commitment to safe opioid care

CLEARLAKE, Calif. – Cal Hospital Compare recognized Adventist Health Clear Lake for their high performance in maternity care and commitment to safe opioid care. Adventist Health Clear Lake was one of 134 hospitals on the Maternity Honor Roll and one of 60 on the Opioid Care Honor Roll.

Honor Roll recognition highlights Adventist Health Clear Lake’s work in reducing births by C-section for first-time mothers with low-risk pregnancies and programs designed to increased access to addiction treatment for hospitalized patients and reduction of opioid-related deaths.

“Adventist Health Clear Lake is proud to be one of the honored hospitals for performance in reducing initial C-sections and community-wide work on opioid use,” said Colleen Assavapisitkul, MSN, patient care executive. “Our staff and providers work diligently to provide the best outcomes for our birthing moms and their babies, and we continually work to develop programs and partner with community agencies to improve the county-wide outcomes related to opioid use. These honors are the result of our work, dedicated healthcare team and collaborations with community partners.”

The 2019 maternity honor roll recognizes 134 hospitals that met or surpassed the federal target aimed at reducing births via C-section and the 23.9 percent cesarean birth statewide target.

The award reflects the most recent hospital discharge and birth certificate data from 235 California hospitals that offer maternity services.

Data from the California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative shows that Adventist Health Clear Lake reduced C-section births to 11.8 percent surpassing the statewide target.

The 2019 opioid honor roll was a pilot year and used to develop a meaningful and relevant threshold to identify honor roll hospitals for this award starting in 2020.

All California adult, acute care hospitals were invited to participate, and 60 hospitals voluntarily submitted data sharing their progress on implementing evidence-based practices to address the opioid crisis

Adventist Health Clear Lake Medical Center is located at 15630 18th Ave. in Clearlake.
