Chino Valley Medical Center was named one of the nation's 100 Top Hospitals® by Truven Health Analytics,TM a leading provider of data-driven analytics and solutions to improve the cost and quality of healthcare, for the 4thconsecutive year.

The Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals® study identifies hospitals and leadership teams that provide the highest level of value to their communities, based on a national balanced scorecard. The 100 Top Hospitals balanced scorecard measures overall organizational performance across 11 key analytic measures including patient care, operational efficiency and financial stability. The study has been conducted annually since 1993. This is thefourth year in a row that CVMC has been recognized with this honor. Dr James M. Lally, President & Chief Medical Officer is very proud of his staff "who make it happen every day", says Lally. "This award is a testimony to their great work and the outstanding care that the staff provides."

Chino Valley Medical Center, a subsidiary of Prime Healthcare Services, is a 126 bed facility located in beautiful Southern California. They are named a 100 top hospital in the nation by Truven Health Analytics for four years running as well as America's Best Hospitals for Emergency Care by the Women's Choice Awards. At CVMC, they are also an academic acute care facility staffed with physicians and residents who provide an innovative approach in treatment. Within their teaching environment, patients are treated by their qualified professionals as we meet the needs of the diverse communities they serve. This program is fully accredited by the American Osteopathic Association (A.O.A.)

Chino Valley Medical Center is proud of its staff and the caring touch they provide. Patients and visitors often express their sense of the hospital's "family" atmosphere. This is due not only to the efficient size of the facility, but more importantly because of the warm, personalized care given by their staff. With over 400 registered nurses, technicians and support personnel at your service, Chino Valley Medical Center is a place for you to heal.


To conduct the 100 Top Hospitals study, Truven Health researchers evaluated close to 3,000 short-term, acute-care, non-federal hospitals. Risk-adjusted methodologies were used to analyze public information — Medicare cost reports, Medicare Provider Analysis and Review (MEDPAR) data, and core measures and patient satisfaction data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Compare reports. Hospitals do not apply, and winners do not pay to market this honor.

The winning hospitals were announced in the March 2, 2015, edition of Modern Healthcare magazine.

"This year's 100 Top Hospitals represent the highest national standards in hospital care and management today. They set the benchmarks for peers around the country to follow — consistently delivering outstanding quality of care, satisfaction and community value at a reasonable cost," said Jean Chenoweth, senior vice president for performance improvement and the 100 Top Hospitals program at Truven Health Analytics. "The majority of the 2015 award winners have produced year-to-year performance improvement, as well. This speaks to the consistent focus on excellence by the entire organization and the men and women who serve patients."

The study shows that if all hospitals in the U.S. performed at the level of this year's winners:

  • 126,471 additional lives could be saved
  • 108,926 additional patients could be complication-free
  • $1.8 billion in inpatient costs could be saved
  • The average patient stay would decrease by half a day
  • Episode-of-illness expense would be 2 percent lower than the peer average
