ARMC Achieves 2023 Maternity Care Honor Roll

ARMC Achieves 2023 Maternity Care Honor Roll

OB/GYN services have been awarded for reducing C-section birth rates for first-time mothers with low-risk pregnancies.

Arrowhead Regional Medical Center’s obstetrics and gynecology services were awarded the 2023 Maternity Care Honor Roll by Cal Hospital Compare and the California Health and Human Services Agency for successfully reducing Cesarean birth rates for first-time mothers with low-risk pregnancies.

Evidence suggests that overuse of C-section births can result in higher rates of complications for mothers like hemorrhage, transfusions, infection, and blood clots. C-section births also have risks for babies, such as higher rates of infection, respiratory complications, neonatal intensive care unit stays, and lower breastfeeding rates.

Kristina Roloff, D.O., Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) and Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB/GYN) physician at ARMC shared, “At our Women’s Health Center, our goal is to have a healthy mother, healthy baby, and healthy family. We have created a culture that promotes safe birth, and our low cesarean delivery rate is an example of how we do this.” Roloff continued, “Going through childbirth is an exciting as well as nerve-racking experience. At ARMC we try to help parents navigate that experience to achieve a natural delivery.”

Arrowhead Regional Medical Center is a 456-bed university-affiliated teaching hospital licensed by the State of California Department of Public Health, operated by San Bernardino County, and governed by the Board of Supervisors. It is ARMC’s mission, in an environment of learning and innovation, to serve our diverse community with high-quality, compassionate care. The hospital, located on a 70-acre campus in Colton, California, operates the Edward G. Hirschman Burn Center, a level I trauma center, a comprehensive stroke center, a behavioral health center, and five primary care centers. ARMC also provides more than 40 outpatient specialty care services. ARMC is helping to achieve the countywide vision by addressing the community’s wellness and educational needs. ARMC is the primary teaching hospital for the California University of Science and Medicine (CUSM). The University welcomed its first class of students in 2018.
