2015 Minnesota Cesarean Rates

Update 10/12/16: Corrected tables have been posted below and the old numbers have been removed.

I have had a very, very long day. Very long. A long week, actually.

But enough about me. It’s my favorite thing ever! Time to figure out 2015 Cesarean rates!!!!!!!

I can’t even tell you how excited I was when the raw data from the Minnesota Hospital Association was available. I’m SO excited that I’m going to post all of the rates for hospitals with more than 100 births. There are some limits to the info that’s released publicly, but this is true for any health information that’s made public: numbers that were small than 5 were not reported. There is a whole category that only 5 hospitals in the entire state had numbers high enough to count. This info is the best I can do right now with what info there is. It may change after a good night’s sleep and my eyes are no longer crossed.

More posts will come in the next few days, including some handy-dandy printables you can use because, while I’m thankful for the Pawlenty Administration for mandating this info get released, ease of use was not a priority.

Enjoy, and be peaceful to one another.

Opening BabyLove in September of 2011 has allowed me to build a space where all families can come to get good information in a caring, welcoming environment. I have found that not only do I love teaching more than ever, but I also really love running a business. Hopefully my passion for every aspect of BabyLove shines through.
I live in Richfield with my husband, and I am a mother of a two great children. When I can steal a few free moments, I love to go on adventures with my family, cook, garden, thrift, can, and craft.
