(Chino, Calif., March 14, 2017) – Chino Valley Medical Center (CVMC) was named one of the

nation's 100 Top Hospitals® by Truven Health Analytics™ a leading provider of information and

solutions to improve the cost and quality of healthcare. This is the 6th year in a row that CVMC

has been recognized for this achievement.

CVMC, established in 1972, is a 112-bed community hospital centrally located in beautiful

Southern California. After significant investments, CVMC has achieved outstanding quality and

patient safety recognition from organizations including The Leapfrog Group, US News & World

Report, Healthgrades, Women’s Choice Award®, and the National Research Corporation “Path

to Excellence” award. The hospital provides the latest technology and services for improving

lives including a da Vinci Robotic Surgery Unit and top-rated orthopedic and gastrointestinal

care.

For the 100 Top Hospitals® study, Truven Health researchers analyzed public information —

Medicare cost reports, Medicare Provider Analysis and Review (MedPAR) data, core measures

and patient satisfaction data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital

Compare website.

Based on the results of this year’s study, if all Medicare inpatients received the same level of

care as those treated in the award-winning facilities:

• Nearly than 89,000 additional lives could be saved

• Over 61,000 additional patients could be complication-free

• Over $5.6 billion in inpatient costs could be saved

• The average patient stay would decrease by half a day

• Over 300,000 fewer discharged patients would be readmitted within 30 days

• Patients would spend nine minutes less in hospital emergency departments per

visit.

“The hospital industry’s ongoing transition from fee-for-service to value-based care appears to

be bearing some positive results for both patients and payers,” said Jean Chenoweth, senior vice

president at Truven Health Analytics. “The magnitude of improvement we’ve observed over the

last five years is greater than any other five-year period we’ve tracked. On top of that, this year’s

winners have reached new highs in performance in comparison to peers across the country,

which suggests that improvement in value from hospitals is likely to continue.” The winning

hospitals were announced in the March 6th edition of Modern Healthcare magazine.

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 hospital performance across 10 areas:

mortality; inpatient complications; patient safety; average patient stay; expenses; profitability;

patient satisfaction; adherence to clinical standards of care; and post-discharge mortality and

readmission rates for acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), heart failure, and pneumonia.

The study has been conducted annually since 1993.
