CALNOC Participating Hospitals Recognized as the Top in the Nation
Date:4/17/2013

San Ramon, CA (PRWEB) April 17, 2013

The Collaborative Alliance for Nursing Outcomes (CALNOC), the leading provider of actionable information and research on nurse sensitive quality indicators, congratulates eight of its participating hospitals recently recognized as top performers according to Healthgrades, Inc., and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

Two CALNOC hospitals, Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian in Newport Beach, CA and Saint Vincent Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA, made Healthgrades’ 2013 list of America’s 50 Best Hospitals.

Five additional CALNOC hospitals in California made Healthgrades’ list of America’s 100 Best Hospitals. These award recipients include Scripps Mercy Hospital in San Diego, Sequoia Hospital in Redwood City, John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, Mills Health Center in San Mateo, and Saddleback Memorial Medical Center in Laguna Hills.

Healthgrades has ranked its 50 Best Hospitals in the top 1% of hospitals in the nation for exhibiting clinical excellence year after year, while the 100 Best Hospitals are ranked in the top 2%. These hospitals have the lowest overall average risk adjusted in-hospital mortality and complication rates for certain procedures, according to the report released on February 18, 2013.

According to Healthgrades, if all hospitals performed at the level of the 100 Best Hospitals (from 2009 through 2011), more than 165,000 lives could potentially have been saved.

CALNOC would also like to congratulate Sonora Regional Medical Center, named as a top performer by CMS. For improving the quality of inpatient care, they received a bonus payment of $37,191. The award is based on the increase in the hospital’s average Composite Quality Score (CQS). Sonora Regional Medical Center is part of Adventist Health and is located in the heart of the Mother Lode in Sonora, CA.

“Their exceptional performance reflects a dedication and commitment to quality,” said Tony Sung, Chief Operating Officer of CALNOC. “These award recipients have consistently provided quality care, which results in the best possible patient outcomes.”
