Paradise Valley Hospital was just named one of the nation's "Top
Performers on Key Quality Measures" by The Joint Commission—and
is the only hospital in San Diego County to be named a "Top Performer"
four years in a row.
Paradise Valley Hospital was one of 1,224 hospitals nationwide to meet
or exceed the target rates of performance in 2013. In California, 86 hospitals
were named "Top Performer" in at least two categories.
According to The Joint Commission, Paradise Valley was recognized for exemplary
performance in using evidence-based clinical processes that are shown
to improve care for four conditions: heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia
and surgical care.
"Paradise Valley's accomplishment as the only hospital to achieve
this prestigious recognition four years in a row in San Diego was made
possible through the dedication, commitment and clinical skills of our
physicians and employees," said Neerav Jadeja, Paradise Valley Hospital
To be named a "Top Performer," Paradise Valley Hospital had to
meet or exceed 95% performance on a composite score for all reported accountability
measures; meet or exceed 95% performance on each and every reported accountability
measure where there are at least 30 denominator cases; and have at least
one core measure set with a composite rate of at least 95%.
Jadeja added, "Combined with being ranked among the Top 100 Hospitals
in the Nation in 2014 by Truven Health, Paradise Valley Hospital has become
nationally recognized for patient safety and quality care. We are pleased
to offer South Bay residents this caliber of healthcare."
The Joint Commission is the leading accreditor of healthcare organizations
