PVHMC Named Among Best Hospitals in Los Angeles by US News & World Report

Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center (PVHMC) has once again earned top marks as a Best Regional Hospital by U.S. News & World Report for 2023-24. PVHMC is among the elite 12% of hospitals in the nation that achieved “Best” honors.

The annual Best Hospital rankings and ratings list is designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive quality care for challenging health conditions or elective procedures.

“These ratings are a direct reflection of our Associate’s unwavering commitment to providing outstanding health care to our patients every day,” said Richard E. Yochum, FACHE, PVHMC President/CEO. “With a focus on quality, safety and access to the latest technologies and treatments available, it’s clear that our community can count on the expert team at PVHMC to offer the best possible outcomes for their health.”

The hospital also earned “High Performing” ratings for excellence in eight adult specialties, procedures and conditions:

  • Heart attack
  • Heart bypass surgery
  • Heart failure
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney failure
  • Stroke
  • Hip fracture
  • Pneumonia

High Performing ratings recognize care that was significantly better than the national average, as measured by factors such as patient outcomes and is the highest rating U.S. News awards for those types of care.

For their 34th annual rankings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals across 15 specialties and 21 procedures and conditions. Hospitals awarded a “Best” designation excelled at factors such as clinical outcomes, level of nursing care and patient experience.

“For 34 years, U.S. News has provided data-informed rankings to help patients and their doctors find the best hospital to treat their illness or condition,” said Ben Harder, chief of health analysis and managing editor at U.S. News. “Fewer than half of evaluated hospitals earned any High Performing rating. Hospitals that are High Performing have excelled in providing high quality care in specific procedures and/or conditions.”

U.S. News evaluated each hospital’s performance using a variety of measures such as survival rates, complication rates, patient experience and level of nursing care. The Best Hospitals methodology factors in data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, American Hospital Association, professional organizations and medical specialists.
