Lompoc Valley Medical Center Named Top 100 Safecare Hospital
Lompoc Valley Medical Center was notified this week that it has received the honor of being named one of the “100 SafeCare Hospitals®” 2014-15” for achieving the best overall performance among 3,500 acute care, nonfederal hospitals.
This distinction uniquely identifies the country’s best healthcare institutions based on robust, evidence-based criteria of the Affordable Care Act.
LVMC was specifically named for Overall Best Processes of Care; Best Outcomes of Care and Best Efficacy of Care.
Only the 100 hospitals under 100 beds with the highest scores made the “100 SafeCare Hospitals Under 100 Beds” list. Only five other hospitals of this size in California achieved the rating.
“There are a total of 3,500 hospitals in the country under 100 beds and this is a remarkable acknowledgement of the dedication and skill of Lompoc Valley Medical Center staff,” said Chief Executive Officer Jim Raggio. “We are proud of our accomplishment.”
