The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has awarded Adventist Health Glendale its third consecutive five-star rating, the highest-possible, through the Overall Hospital Star Ratings program.
This recognition is due to the dedication and hard work that the medical staff exhibits each day, the organization said, describing the distinction as “very difficult to attain and is represented in a leading resource that consumers use to determine where they’ll seek care.”
When compared to other hospitals — in the Los Angeles area, California and across the country — Adventist Health Glendale ranks among the very best: Of the 4,586 hospitals evaluated by the organization, just 11 hospitals in the greater Los Angeles area achieved the five-star rating, and only 14% of hospitals nationwide and 11% in California have earned five stars.
“Delivering top-decile clinical results has always been and will always be a major priority at our hospital,” said Alice Issai, hospital president, in a statement. “Our ongoing success proves that we are on the right path. Thank you to our physicians, nurses and associates for your constant commitment to delivering exceptional care and service for our patients.”
