Garden Grove Hospital Medical Center Named Among 100 Top Hospitals in the Nation For 2nd Year
Garden Grove Hospital Medical Center was named among the “100 Top Hospitals” in the nation by Truven Health Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters), based on the quality of care and patient satisfaction. Truven Health Analytics is a leading provider of information and solutions to improve the cost and quality of healthcare.
This is the second year in a row that Garden Grove Hospital has been recognized as a Top 100 Hospital.
“This recognition reflects the outstanding hard work, dedication and excellent patient care that our hospital provides,” said Hassan Alkhouli, M.D., Chief Medical Officer at Garden Grove Hospital. “We are proud to be acknowledged as a leader in health care with this prestigious award.”
Garden Grove Hospital is part of Prime Healthcare Services. Eight of the eleven California community hospitals that earned this distinction were Prime Healthcare hospitals. Prime Healthcare hospitals have earned this recognition 21 times.
With nearly 3,000 U.S. hospitals surveyed, the hospitals demonstrated that high-quality patient outcomes can be achieved while improving efficiency. According to Thomson Reuters, if all hospitals performed at the same level as the 100 Top Hospitals award winners:
- More than 186,000 additional lives could be saved.
- Approximately 56,000 additional patients could be complication-free.
- More than $4.3 billion could be saved.
- The average patient stay would decrease by nearly half a day.
- The typical winning hospital charges $464 less per discharge than the typical non-winner.
“This prestigious recognition speaks volumes to our commitment to quality patient care,” said Prem Reddy, MD, FACC, FCCP, Chairman, President and CEO of Prime Healthcare Services. “I congratulate the physicians, nurses and staff at these hospitals for their deep devotion to the highest standards of quality care in the country.”
The Truven 100 Top Hospitals study evaluates performance in 10 areas: mortality; medical complications; patient safety; average patient stay; expenses; profitability; patient satisfaction; adherence to clinical standards of care; post-discharge mortality; and readmission rates for acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), heart failure, and pneumonia. The study has been conducted annually since 1993. Hospitals do not apply, and winners do not pay to market this honor.
