GVCH receives Center of Excellence recognition 


Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital has qualified to receive the CHART "Certificate of Excellence" for July 2010. 


This means the hospital staff has achieved above average or superior scores in five of the eight measure sets (or >62.5% of the measure sets for which it qualifies) used to determine eligibility for the Certificate. 


GVCH was given a rating of "Superior" in the Overall Patient Experience category.




This Certificate is based on the August 2010 CalHospitalCompare.org update. 


The hospital has also not received a "below average" or "poor" score on any CHART measure; has chosen to report all CHART measure sets for which it qualifies; and scored in at least four of the eight measure sets.


A CHART hospital has to have at least 1 “Superior” or “Above Average” score in at least five of eight measures sets - ICU Mortality, Heart Failure, CABG Mortality, Breastfeeding, Overall Patient Experience, Patient Safety (HAPU or SCIP), AMI (Quality or Preventive Care), Pneumonia (Quality or Preventive Care).
