Paradise Valley Hospital has been recognized by
US News & World Report as a “high performing” hospital for the treatment of congestive
heart failure 2017-2018. This is the second year in a row that Paradise
Valley has been awarded this distinction.
US News evaluates performance data of nearly 5,000 hospitals across the United
States in the treatment of 16 key specialties, such as congestive heart
failure. Hospitals that are in the top 10% of each specialty are designated
as “high performing.” Paradise Valley Hospital fits that criteria,
and is now one of the only 333 “high performing” hospitals
in the nation.
“Our cardiac program, from our Diagnostic Imaging Department to our
Cardiac Catheterization Lab to our medical/surgical unit, is staffed by
some of the best health care professionals I’ve met in my career,” states
Neerav Jadeja, CEO of Paradise Valley. “We are committed to excellence and follow
a coordinated system of care that improves the treatment and outcomes
of our cardiac patients. Our goal is to sustain our efforts and never
stop improving because it’s what our patients deserve.”
Genaro Fernandez, MD, medical chief of staff and director of cardiology services at Paradise
Valley echoes Jadeja’s sentiments. “The nurses and physicians
here are dedicated to the well-being of the people of this community—a
community that is especially challenged for diabetes and diseases of the
heart.” According to the San Diego Health and Human Services Agency,
in the South Bay area of San Diego, the rate of hospitalization for coronary
heart disease is 32% higher than the average for the rest of the county.
The rate of hospitalization for diabetes is 50% higher than the county average.
