American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists President John C. Jennings, M.D., and American Society of Anesthesiologists® President Jane C.K. Fitch, M.D., released the following statement today:
“The study published today in Health Affairs regarding variability in obstetrical complications demonstrates the need for constructive efforts to improve care for women and babies across America. Not surprisingly, the study found remarkable levels of variability between low-performing and high-performing hospitals. American women, and their families, deserve better."
