Monongahela Valley Hospital (MVH) has been recognized as a High Performing Hospital for 2019-20 by U.S. News & World Report.

The annual Procedures & Conditions ratings, now in their 5th year, are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for common conditions and elective procedures. These ratings extend the U.S. News mission of providing consumers with patient decision support beyond the Best Hospitals rankings, which are geared toward complex specialty care.

For the third consecutive year, Monongahela Valley Hospital earned a “High Performing” rating for COPD. In addition, 2019-20 marks the second time MVH received the “High Performing” rating for Heart Failure. Both of these ratings are in recognition of care that was significantly better than the national average, as measured by factors such as patient outcomes. “High Performing” is the highest rating U.S. News awards for those types of care.

“The ‘High Performing Hospital’ ranking in COPD care directly coincides with the creation of Monongahela Valley Hospital’s Community Care Network, which was developed to help people receive the best health care possible through a comprehensive series of care coordination and educational strategies that support each physician’s care plans,” explained MVH President and CEO Louis J. Panza Jr. “In terms of heart failure, our staff ensures that heart failure patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, evidence-based guidelines. Our overall goal is to speed recovery and reduce hospital admissions for heart failure patients.”

For the 2019-20 ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 medical centers nationwide in nine procedures and conditions. Fewer than a third of all hospitals received any high-performing rating.

Earlier this year, also for the third consecutive year, Monongahela Valley Hospital received five stars for the quality treatment of COPD from Healthgrades. This rating indicates that statistically, MVH’s outcomes are significantly better than expected when treating COPD. MVH also earned the American Heart Association’s Get With the Guidelines – Heart Failure Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award which recognizes MVH’s commitment to ensuring that heart failure patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to national guidelines and the latest scientific evidence.
