Temecula Valley Hospital has again been awarded grade “A” for patient safety from The Leapfrog Group, an independent healthcare rating organization. The group surveys and ranks 2,600 hospitals across the U.S. based on records of patient safety. Only 48 other hospitals in California have received an “A” rating for three consecutive time periods.
Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group, congratulated the hospital for earning the rating in patient safety. “We congratulate the clinicians, Board, management and hospital staff for showing the country what it means to put patient safety first.”
Top General Hospital Award Recipient
We are also proud to share that The Leapfrog Group ranked Temecula Valley Hospital as a Top General Hospital, one of 45 hospitals nationwide to receive the award.
CEO Darlene Wetton says that her staff should be proud that their dedication to their patients earned the hospital this distinction. “Only six hospitals in California received the Top General Hospital award. The Top Hospital designation is the gold standard for comparing hospitals on safety, quality, and efficiency, and empowering patients with the lifesaving information they need to make informed decisions on where to receive their healthcare.”
