Southwest Healthcare System Earns "Top Hospital" Award

Proud members of the Southwest Healthcare System medical team.

Inland Valley Medical Center and Rancho Springs Medical Center were named Top General Hospitals by The Leapfrog Group, an independent healthcare rating organization. The hospitals are two of only 35 general hospitals across the country to have earned this competitive honor, and it was the first time for both.

“This recognition is a culmination of years of hard work from our entire staff at both hospitals,” says Brad​ Neet, Chief Executive Officer of Southwest Healthcare System. “I am proud of the focus and dedication from each department and their commitment to the highest standards in delivering the best care when it comes to quality and safety.”

Neet says that in the last several years, Southwest Healthcare System has earned more awards than any other time in the history of the organization. “Receiving the Top Hospital Award is one of the pinnacles of our achievements. It takes the entire hospital staff to make this happen and I want to congratulate each and every team member that contributed to this success,” he says.

The award is given only to hospitals that meet The Leapfrog Group’s Top Hospital Methodology criteria, which measures performance across many areas of the hospital. Infection rates, maternity care and prevention of medication errors are just some of the qualifications included in the methodology. According to The Leapfrog Group, less than six percent of eligible hospitals across the country earned the award.
