RIDGEWOOD, NJ, January 17, 2023 – The Valley Hospital is proud to announce that it is one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for 2023, according to new research released by Healthgrades. This achievement puts Valley in the top two percent of hospitals nationwide for overall clinical performance across the most common conditions and procedures.
Valley is one of only three hospitals in New Jersey to receive the distinction, and the only hospital in Bergen County to receive it.
“We are honored to be recognized as one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals by Healthgrades,” said Audrey Meyers, President and CEO, Valley Health System. “This prestigious award for clinical outcomes demonstrates the importance we place on delivering the highest-quality care and service to our patients and their families.”
Healthgrades evaluated patient mortality and complication rates for 31 of the most common conditions and procedures at nearly 4,500 hospitals across the country to identify the top-performing hospitals. This year’s analysis revealed significant variation between America’s Best 100 Hospitals and hospitals that did not receive the distinction. In fact, if all hospitals performed similarly to America’s 100 Best, more than 158,000 lives could have been saved.* Additionally, patients treated at one of the 2023 America’s 100 Best Hospitals have, on average, a 25.5% lower risk of dying than if they were treated at a hospital that did not receive the America’s 100 Best Hospitals award.*
“We’re proud to recognize The Valley Hospital as one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for 2023,” said Brad Bowman, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Data Science at Healthgrades. “As one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals, The Valley Hospital consistently delivers better-than-expected outcomes for the patients in their community and is setting a high national standard for clinical excellence.”
