TEMECULA – Temecula Valley Hospital has earned a 5 Star Medicare Hospital Compare Rating, the highest rating from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services for quality. Out of 4,573 hospitals, Temecula Valley Hospital’s 5 Star rating places the facility in the top 6 percent of the country.

“I am excited about the recognition of our 5 Stars on Hospital Compare,” Darlene Wetton, CEO of Temecula Valley Hospital, said. “Quality, patient safety, and compassion are very important to our TVH team values. I am grateful to our staff and medical team for the excellent care that we provide to our community.”

Hospital Compare was created through the efforts of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. According to the Medicare Hospital Compare website, “The Hospital Compare rating summarizes up to 57 quality measures, reflecting common conditions that hospitals treat, such as heart attacks or pneumonia. The overall rating shows how well each hospital performed, on average, compared to other hospitals in the U.S. The Hospital Compare rating ranges from one to five stars. The more stars, the better a hospital performed on the available quality measures. The most common overall rating is 3 stars. The way that Hospital Compare calculates the star ratings is that survey information from one hospital is compared to that from others. More stars indicate better quality care than fewer stars.”

“This is truly a wonderful honor and a reflection of the exceptional providers that we have at TVH.” Dr. Pranav Kachhi, chief of staff for Temecula Valley Hospital, said.
