Chino Valley, Calif. (August 10, 2023) – Chino Valley Medical Center, a member of Prime Healthcare, has been recognized by the Lown Institute for outstanding Patient Safety, receiving an ‘A’ grade on the 2023-24 Lown Institute Hospitals Index. Chino Valley Medical Center achieved this honor through strong performance across metrics of patient outcomes and value of care, out of more than 3,600 hospitals nationwide.
In addition to receiving an ‘A’ in Patient Safety, the hospital also received ‘A’ grades in Value of Care and Community Benefit. These are independent rankings and hospitals do not apply or pay to be listed.
“Receiving this recognition for exceptional service to the Chino Valley community is a testament to the dedication and skill of our staff and physicians,” says Gail Aviado, Chief Executive Officer at Chino Valley Medical Center. “This reflects not only our clinical expertise but is representative of Chino Valley’s unwavering commitment to patient safety, positive health outcomes, and providing outstanding value to our patients.”
“When communities have access to socially responsible healthcare, our nation grows stronger,” said Vikas Saini, MD, president of the Lown Institute. “That’s why it’s so important to hold up these high-performing hospitals as examples for others to follow.”
The Lown Hospitals Index for Social Responsibility is the only ranking to include metrics of health equity and value of care alongside patient outcomes, creating a holistic view of hospitals as total community partners. In the fourth annual and largest set of rankings to date, the 2023-24 Lown Index evaluates hospitals on 50+ measures–including novel metrics such as community benefit, racial inclusivity, and avoidance of overuse–for more than 3,600 hospitals nationwide. Data sources include Medicare fee-for-service and Medicare Advantage claims, CMS patient safety data and hospital cost reports, and IRS 990 forms, among others. Full methodology can be found on the Lown Index website.
The Lown Institute is a nonpartisan think tank that generates bold ideas for a radically better system of health. Learn more at www.LownHospitalsIndex.org.
