Healthgrades Recognizes Atrium, Upper Valley Medical Centers For Patient Safety

DAYTON, Ohio (June 24, 2020) – Premier Health’s Atrium Medical Center in Middletown and Upper Valley Medical Center in Miami County have been named recipients of the Patient Safety Excellence Award™ by Healthgrades.

This recognition ranks Atrium Medical Center and Upper Valley Medical Center among the top 10 percent of hospitals in the nation for patient safety. The Patient Safety Excellence Award™ recognizes hospitals for their performance in safeguarding patients from serious and potentially preventable complications during their hospital stay.

Along with the Patient Safety Excellence recognition, which it has received every year since 2015, Atrium Medical Center was named among America’s 100 Best Hospitals by Healthgrades earlier this year. This distinction places it among the top 2 percent of hospitals in the country for demonstrating clinical excellence across a broad spectrum of care. The hospital also was named among the top 10 percent of hospitals in the nation for critical care. Atrium offers a broad range of advanced, innovative care as a Level III Trauma Center and Primary Stroke Center. It is also the only accredited Chest Pain Center in Warren County. Atrium offers maternity, cancer, orthopedics, and heart care.

Upper Valley Medical Center, which has received the Patient Safety Excellence Award™ for four consecutive years, offers a wide range of advanced care, including emergency, heart, cancer, maternity, behavioral health, long-term care, and much more. The hospital is the only Level II Special Care Nursery between Dayton and Lima. Both Upper Valley Medical Center and Atrium Medical Center have achieved Magnet® Recognition, which is widely seen as the highest standard for excellence in professional nursing.

Healthgrades methodology for the Patient Safety Excellence Award™ uses inpatient data from the Medicare Provider Analysis and Review database and software from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
