Tahoe Forest Hospital has been named a recipient of the 2021 Maternal Data Center (MDC) Early Implementer Award by the California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative (CMQCC). The Award is one of CMQCC’s inaugural Quality and Engagement Awards presented to member hospitals that go above and beyond to ensure the highest quality of care for California’s mothers and birthing people.

The MDC Early Implementers Award recognizes hospitals that implemented a new MDC measure or feature. This year, the award is given to hospitals that submitted data for all five of the MDC’s new Expanded Breastfeeding measures for six consecutive months in 2020. Tahoe Forest Hospital is one of 23 hospitals recognized for this achievement.

According to Harry Weis, President and CEO of Tahoe Forest Health System, the award represents an important recognition from a national leader in innovative approaches to perinatal quality improvement. “The Early Implementers Award achievement signifies our ongoing commitment and dedication to providing the highest quality of care to our birthing patients and newborns.”
