Valley Receives Top Marks for Surgical Care


The Valley Hospital has been recognized by Healthgrades for clinical quality and excellence in four surgical areas: Orthopedics, Vascular Surgery, General Surgery and Neurosurgery.

Valley is the only hospital in Bergen County to be named one of Healthgrades America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Orthopedic Surgery. This recognition places Valley in the top 5 percent of hospitals in the nation for overall orthopedic services.  This is the fourth consecutive year that Valley has received this recognition.

Valley has also been recognized as one of Healthgrades America’s 50 Best Hospitals for Vascular Surgery. This is the second consecutive year that Valley has received this recognition, which places the hospital in the top 10 percent in the nation for vascular surgery.

Valley is the only hospital in Bergen County to receive the Healthgrades 2017 General Surgery Excellence Award, and has been named among the top 10 percent in the nation for general surgery.

The hospital was also recognized with the Healthgrades 2017 Cranial Neurosurgery Excellence Award and has been named among the top 10 percent in the nation for cranial neurosurgery.

“I am very proud that Valley has received these distinguished recognitions,” said Audrey Meyers, President and CEO of The Valley Hospital and Valley Health System. “We understand that patients today have options when it comes to choosing a healthcare provider and it is our goal to be the hospital of choice for the communities we serve. These outstanding recognitions are testament to the priority Valley staff and physicians place on achieving the highest-quality clinical outcomes, while delivering the most compassionate care.” 

Valley achievements are part of findings released today online and in the Healthgrades 2017 Report to the Nation, which demonstrates how clinical care continues to differ dramatically between hospitals both nationally and regionally, and how this variation in care may have a significant impact on health outcomes.  Valley’s superior ratings indicate that their clinical outcomes are statistically significantly better than expected when treating the condition or conducting the procedure being evaluated.

For its 2017 Report, Healthgrades evaluated approximately 45 million patient records for nearly 4,500 short-term acute care hospitals nationwide, assessing hospital performance relative to each of 34 common conditions and procedures.
