Partnership Health Plan honors Petaluma Valley Hospital for high quality

Petaluma Valley Hospital was recently recognized as a top performing hospital by Partnership Health Plan’s (PHP) Hospital Quality Improve Program (Hospital QIP). Petaluma Valley Hospital was one of just six hospitals among the 26 surveyed in Northern California to achieve a 100% score in all quality categories measured while Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital came in with a 90-99% score. 

“This recognition is a testament to the compassionate and dedicated care that is delivered daily by our caregivers and providers,” said Providence Northern California Chief Executive, Garry Olney. “Our patients are our friends, family members and neighbors. That’s why we make it our top priority to pursue excellence in service to their health and well-being. We’re exceptionally proud of this honor!”

The goal of the Hospital QIP is to improve the quality of care provided to PHP members. The measures hospitals report on are selected and designed in collaboration with hospital partners and represent the following domains: readmissions, advance care planning, clinical quality, patient safety, and operations and efficiency.

“Partnership is pleased to acknowledge the standout performance of these hospitals in achieving top quality scores,” Partnership CEO Sonja Bjork said. “These hospitals are crucial to the health and well-being of not only our Medi-Cal members but also our communities. We are grateful for their hard work and commitment to excellence.”

PHP provides quality health care to over 660,000 Medi-Cal recipients across 14 Northern California counties.
