Temecula Valley Hospital celebrates its first year with distinction

Related Special Reports

Just one year ago, Temecula Valley Hospital opened its doors to the community as Temecula’s first acute care hospital. In the past year, the hospital has cared for 26,000 emergency patients and 3,300 patient admissions. Physicians have performed more than 1,600 surgeries, including nearly 300 cardiac procedures.

“Our residents have waited for a hometown hospital for a long time, and we’re determined to provide them with the highest quality medical, surgical and emergency care,” said hospital CEO Darlene Wetton.

A heartwarming recognition

Within a year of its opening, Temecula Valley Hospital has earned prestigious certifications that allow the facility to treat patients suffering from strokes and heart attacks — two of the most time-critical medical emergencies.

The hospital was recognized as a STEMI Receiving Center. This signifies that the hospital meets the highest standards for critical heart attack care when treating ST-segment elevation myocardial infarctions (STEMI), life-threatening heart attacks caused by sudden, total blockage of a coronary artery.

Stroke care: Saving time is saving lives.

Temecula Valley Hospital also achieved designation as a Stroke-Ready Hospital for having the resources in place to manage time-critical stroke patients.

Patient-centered care

“We are dedicated to transforming the hospital experience with patient-centered care for the entire family,” Wetton said. “We continue to witness incredibly positive experiences for patients and their loved ones — all possible because of our commitment to patient-centered care, and the dedication of our highly skilled health care professionals.

"Temecula Valley Hospital thanks our community for your continued support. We are privileged to care for you and look forward to serving you and your family’s healthcare needs now and in the future.”
