Staff report



DAYTON — Miami Valley Hospital has been named to Healthgrades’ list of “America’s 100 Best Hospitals” for a second year in a row.

For 2017, Miami Valley Hospital is the only hospital in the Dayton region – and one of only five in Ohio – to receive the award, Healthgrades’ highest distinction. It is given to the top 2 percent of hospitals in the nation for demonstrating clinical excellence for at least three consecutive years.

“This award is a testament not only to the quality of care that our patients receive, but to the consistency of that care,” said Mark Shaker, president of Miami Valley Hospital. “Our employees take tremendous pride in the fact that so many people in the Dayton region place their trust in us.”

The award is based solely on a hospital’s clinical quality outcomes over a multi-year period, according to Healthgrades. Patients at “America’s 100 Best Hospitals” are more likely to have a successful treatment without major complications.

Headquartered in Denver, Healthgrades is a leading online resource for comprehensive information about hospitals and physicians.
