Temecula Valley Hospital Earns 5-Star Medicare Hospital Compare Rating

Wednesday, March 20, 2019

Temecula Valley Hospital has earned a 5-star Medicare Hospital Compare Rating, the highest rating for quality from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Out of 4,573 hospitals, Temecula Valley Hospital’s 5-star rating places the facility in the top six percent of the country.

Hospital Compare was created through the efforts of CMS. The Hospital Compare rating summarizes up to 57 quality measures, reflecting common conditions that hospitals treat, such as heart attacks or pneumonia. The overall rating shows how well each hospital performed, on average, compared to other hospitals in the U.S. The Hospital Compare rating ranges from one to five stars. The more stars, the better a hospital performed on the available quality measures. The most common overall rating is three stars. The way Hospital Compare calculates the star ratings is by comparing survey information from one hospital to that from others. More stars indicate better quality care than fewer stars.

“I am excited about the recognition of our five stars on Hospital Compare,” said Darlene Wetton, CEO, Temecula Valley Hospital. “Quality, patient safety and compassion are very important to our TVH team values. I am grateful to our staff and medical team for the excellent care that we provide to our community.”

Pranav Kachhi, MD, Chief of Staff for Temecula Valley Hospital, said, “This is truly a wonderful honor and a reflection of the exceptional providers that we have at TVH!”
