West Valley Medical Center has once again been named a Top Performer on Key Quality Measures® by The Joint Commission. This designation means physicians and clinical teams at West Valley Medical Center consistently utilized evidence-based care processes delivered in the right way and at the right time to ensure quality patient care and improve clinical outcomes.
West Valley Medical Center is recognized for its achievement on the following measure sets: heart attack, pneumonia, stroke and surgical care. This was the fourth year West Valley was designated as a Top Performer by The Joint Commission. The ratings are based on an aggregation of accountability measure data reported to The Joint Commission during the 2014 calendar year.
The Top Performer on Key Quality Measures® list is featured in America's Hospitals: Improving Quality and Safety, The Joint Commission's Annual Report. Only about 32 percent of the more than 3,300 accredited U.S. hospitals that reported accountability measure data for 2014 are recognized as Top Performers in this year's list. The report also summarizes accredited hospitals' performance on 49 accountability measures of evidence-based care processes closely linked to positive patient outcomes.
