Chino Valley Medical Center has been recognized as one of SafeCare Group’s 100 best “safecare” hospitals in the U.S. with 100 to 400 beds, according to a SafeCare news release.

The hospital ratings group analyzes 30-day mortality rates, 30-day readmissions, complications rates in medical and surgical care, medical and surgical infections and patient satisfaction, among other factors.

The SafeCare Group was founded in 2010 to help hospitals excel in the areas of Patient Safety, Quality, and Efficiency through best-in-class PQE software, high quality people, and value-added services. The SafeCare Group helps to keep hospitals compliant with regulatory standards that are required under the Affordable Care Act.

If all U.S. hospitals attained the 100 SafeCare Hospitals level, there would be improvement in the more than 400,000 hospital deaths and close to 5.1 million preventable complications that occur each year.

“Much too often, hospital reputation and performance on quality measures are divergent. We believe that a listing of outstanding hospitals in the areas of the Affordable Care Act would promote strong incentives to improve care, treatments, and services,” says Dr. Yisrael Safeek, MD, MBA, Founder and Chairman of The SafeCare Group.

Chino Valley Medical Center, established in 1972, is a 126-bed community hospital serving a diverse population and incorporates elements of urban, suburban, and rural medicine, offering services including an emergency department, 10 intensive care beds, full radiological and laboratory services; as well as a comprehensive operative suite with separate GI and pain facilities.

 It is located at 5451 Walnut Ave. in Chino, 464-8600.
