About Prime Healthcare
The seeds of Prime Healthcare’s success were first sown in the High Desert region of Southern California where Dr. Prem Reddy began practicing medicine in the 1980s. It was there he built Prime Healthcare’s flagship facility, Desert Valley Hospital, to serve the community.
Desert Valley Hospital was sold to another corporation for a few years, and immediately began faltering. In 2001 Dr. Reddy formed Prime Healthcare Services to re-purchase the hospital, rescuing it from bankruptcy and setting the standard for quality healthcare that continues throughout the hospital network to this day. Prime Healthcare’s motto is “Saving Hospitals, Saving Jobs, Saving Lives” which the company continues to do as it grows.
From the lessons learned during the transformation of Desert Valley Hospital, Prime Healthcare’s model was established and now leads to the rescue and transformation of financially struggling community hospitals across the country. Desert Valley Hospital has been recognized as a Top 100 Hospital in the nation on numerous occasions.
Three years after the formation of Prime Healthcare, the company purchased the second hospital in the family, Chino Valley Medical Center, when Dr. Reddy was asked to save the hospital from bankruptcy. Growth continued throughout the early 2000s, and in recent years has increased pace as the shifting healthcare landscape endangered more and more small community hospitals, threatening to close them without financial support. To date, Prime has invested more than $1.1 billion in capital improvements for its hospitals since 2005.
