Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center has been recognized as a High Performing
Hospital for 2019-20 by U.S. News & World Report.
The annual Procedures & Conditions ratings, now in their 5th year, are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive
care for common conditions and elective procedures. These ratings extend
the U.S. News mission of providing consumers with patient decision support
beyond the Best Hospitals rankings, which are geared toward complex specialty care.
Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center earned “High Performing”
ratings for Aortic Valve Surgery and Heart Failure, in recognition of
care that was significantly better than the national average, as measured
by factors such as patient outcomes. “High Performing” is
the highest rating U.S. News awards for that type of care.
“We are filled with gratitude to receive recognition for the endless
hours of care that our team devotes to create highly personalized care
for everyone that visits PVHMC,” said President and CEO Richard
E. Yochum. “We hope that in receiving these accolades from the U.S.
News & World Report Pomona Valley residents can be assured that premium
health care is just minutes from home.”
For the 2019-20 ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 medical centers
nationwide in nine procedures and conditions. Fewer than a third of all hospitals received
any high-performing rating, and only 57 earned this rating in all nine
Procedures & Conditions. The state and metro area rankings recognize
hospitals that received high performing ratings across multiple areas of care.
“For 30 years, U.S. News has strived to make hospital quality more
transparent to healthcare consumers nationwide,” said Ben Harder,
managing editor and chief of health analysis at U.S. News. “By providing
the most comprehensive data available on nearly every hospital across
the United States, we give patients, families and physicians information
to support their search for the best care across a range of procedures,
conditions and specialties.”
The U.S. News Procedures & Conditions
methodology is based entirely on objective measures of quality such as risk-adjusted
outcome rates, volume, quality of nursing and other care-related indicators.
The Procedures & Conditions ratings were produced by U.S. News analysts.
