Truven top 100 awardParadise Valley Hospital, as part of Prime Healthcare Services, was ranked among the 2013 Top 15 Top Health Systems in the nation by Truven Health Analytics based on quality of care, efficiency and patient satisfaction. Only two health systems in the state of California received this distinguished national recognition in 2013.

This is the third time in five years that Prime Healthcare has earned the national distinction. Alvarado Hospital, located adjacent to SDSU, is also part of Prime Healthcare system.

According to Truven Health, compared to its peers, Top 15 health system hospitals save more lives, cause fewer patient complications, follow industry-recommended standards of care more closely, make fewer patient safety errors, release patients half a day sooner, and score better on overall patient satisfaction. This annual, quantitative study uses objective, independent research and public data sources.

Health systems do not apply, and winners do not pay to market their award.

"Prime Healthcare consistently shows that it’s a leader in an ever-evolving healthcare landscape,” said Mike Sarian, Prime Healthcare president of operations. "The award serves as a reassurance to the hospitals' teams of clinicians, physicians and leaders who have been dedicated to do the right thing, always and every time.”

"We thank the physicians, nurses and staffs at Prime Healthcare hospitals who are dedicated to achieving superior clinical outcomes.” added Regional CEO Luis Leon, Prime Healthcare.
