Verde Valley Medical Center recognized again as national leader in patient safety by Healthgrades

Verde Valley Medical Center received recognition for the sixth consecutive year as a national leader in patient safety by Healthgrades® - the nation's leading healthcare rating organization. Ranked in the top five percent of hospitals in the nation for patient safety in 2014, VVMC is also one of 10 Arizona hospitals to receive the Patient Safety Excellence AwardTM. VVMC is committed to providing the highest quality care to its patients and their families - care distinguished by superior medical knowledge and experience; kindness and compassion; and the best available technology.

Healthgrades awarded VVMC with five-star ratings for total hip replacement for the third year in a row, and for hip fracture treatment programs for three years total.

In 2013, Healthgrades awarded VVMC with five-star ratings for total joint replacement and total knee replacement programs.

The Patient Safety Excellence AwardTM recognizes recipients for their excellent performance in safeguarding patients from serious, potentially preventable complications during their hospital stay.

"These awards and rankings demonstrate VVMC's commitment to providing our patients the best medical care," said Barbara Dember, M.H.A., F.A.C.H.E., VVMC president and CEO. "Receiving the Patient Safety Excellence Award for six years in a row from this respected organization is a testament to the commitment of all our staff and physicians in making VVMC one of the safest hospitals in the U.S."

Established in 1998, Healthgrades® provides objective, comprehensive information about hospital quality. Visit for more information.
