Objective: To identify the association between the reference time and the maternal mortality cause in the Regional Hospital Materno Infantil 'El Carmen'. Methods: Analytical, retrospective, cross - sectional study, based on data from all cases of maternal death at the Hospital Regional Materno Infantil 'El Carmen'. Census study that covered all the deceased mothers attended at that hospital during the period 2009-2015 and that their data were found on the basis of the establishment; Clinical Histories were excluded with incomplete information, or from previous periods. Results: Of the 29 patients who died since 2009, the median age was 28.5 years (interquartile range: 27-35 years of age); There were statistically significant differences in the time of transfer (p <0.001), the type of complication (p = 0.019) and in the final cause of death (p <0.001). It was found that the indirect causes of death had a longer reference time (67.5 minutes of the indirect cause versus 15 minutes of the direct cause), being this statistically significant (p = 0.0387). Conclusion: There is an increasing tendency to maternal deaths, in addition, differences were found in the type of complication and the final cause of death according to the place of origin of the pregnant women.
