Founded in 1994 by Dr. Prem Reddy, a board certified cardiologist, Desert Valley Hospital is an innovative, 148-bed acute care hospital located in California’s High Desert country. Accredited “with commendation” in its first year of operation by The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO), Desert Valley provides compassionate, integrated healthcare by partnering with Desert Valley Medical Group, the largest multi-specialty medical group in the area.
From the beginning, the hospital has been recognized for superior patient outcomes, cost efficiency and patient safety. PacifiCare’s Quality INDEX survey, conducted in 2004, ranked the hospital among the Top 10 Hospitals in California.
In 2007, Desert Valley was honored by Premier Healthcare Alliance as a CareScience Select Practice National Quality Leader, placing Desert Valley among the top 1 percent of some 4,700 acute care hospitals nationwide.
In 2010, Becker’s Hospital Review ranked it as one of the “Best Community Hospitals.” The next year, the hospital received a Patient Safety Excellence Award from the National Research Corporation’s NRC Picker.
More recently, Desert Valley was ranked among the “Top 100 Hospitals in the Nation” by Truven Health Analytics (formerly part of Thomson Reuters) – for the seventh time. Plus, The Leapfrog Group, an independent national nonprofit run by employers and other large purchasers of health benefits, gave Desert Valley Hospital an "A" for Hospital Safety, based on a national database of patient safety measures.
Calculated under the guidance of a nine-member Blue Ribbon Expert Panel, The Leapfrog Group's Hospital Safety Score uses 26 measures of publicly available data to produce a composite score representing a hospital's overall ability to keep patients safe from infections, injuries and medication errors.
Desert Valley was the first hospital in Prime Healthcare Services’ group, which now includes 23 hospitals across the country. Headquartered in Ontario, California, Prime Healthcare has also been recognized by Truven Health Analytics – for the second consecutive year – as one of the “15 Top Health Systems in the Nation,” based on quality of healthcare and patient satisfaction. In fact, eight Prime Healthcare hospitals were ranked in 2013 among the “100 Top Hospital in the Nation.”
