Garden Grove Hospital Medical Center last week announced it has been recognized as a 2013 Top Performer on Key Quality Measures by The Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of health care organizations in the United States.
Garden Grove Hospital Medical Center was recognized as part of The Joint Commission’s 2014 annual report, “America’s Hospitals: Improving Quality and Safety,” for attaining and sustaining excellence in accountability measure performance for heart attack, pneumonia, and surgical care.
Garden Grove Hospital Medical Center is one of 1,224 hospitals in the United States to achieve the 2013 Top Performer distinction.
The Top Performer program recognizes hospitals for improving performance on evidence-based interventions that increase the chances of healthy outcomes for patients with certain conditions, including heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care, children’s asthma, stroke, venous thromboembolism and perinatal care, as well as for in-patient psychiatric services and immunizations.
It’s Veterans Day.
Please remember to thank a veteran for serving our country. Also, read about Veterans Day ceremonies that took place in Garden Grove in this week’s Orange County News.

If you want to see results for the Garden Grove and Stanton areas, go to the Orange County Registrar of Voters at ocvote.com.
