Recognized for Patient Safety Excellence Five Years in a Row!

Alvarado Hospital Medical Center announced that it is a recipient of the Healthgrades 2018 Patient Safety Excellence Award, a designation that recognizes superior performance of hospitals that have prevented the occurrence of serious, potentially avoidable complications for patients during hospital stays.

Alvarado is the only hospital in the city of San Diego to receive this recognition four years in a row (2015-2018). Alvarado Hospital is a member of Prime Healthcare, and Prime Healthcare has more Patient Safety Excellence Award recipients for three consecutive years (2016-2018) than any other health system in the country.

“We applaud the hospitals who have received the Healthgrades 2018 Patient Safety Excellence Award,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Healthgrades. “Their dedication and commitment to providing safe care creates tangible results for patients.”

The distinction places Alvarado among the top five percent of all acute care hospitals reporting patient safety data for its excellent performance as evaluated by Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals.

“Patient safety is preached throughout Prime Healthcare, and we have taken that philosophy to heart here at Alvarado Hospital,” says Robin Gomez, Alvarado CEO. “Excelling at patient safety is a holistic thing: if the patients are kept well while in our care, that means we are excelling at all of the other aspects of patient care.”
