Beacon Award for Critical Care ExcellenceThe Valley Hospital is proud to announce that all four critical care units -- Intensive Care, Coronary Care, Cardiac Surgery, and Intermediate Care – are two-time recipients of the Beacon Award for Critical Care Excellence.

This prestigious award, given by the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN), recognizes the extraordinary commitment to high-quality critical care standards and dedication to the exceptional care of patients and their families provided by the staff of Valley’s critical care units.
