The Leapfrog Group, a national nonprofit health care ratings organization, released new Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades, awarding top marks to St. Luke’s hospital campuses and Grand View Hospital.
The Leapfrog Group aims to improve healthcare quality and safety for consumers and purchasers. Its safety grade assigns an A, B, C, D or F grade to hospitals across the country based on their performance in preventing medical errors, infections and other harms to patients in their care.
Grand View Health has earned its eighth “A” in a row for patient safety.
Five of St. Luke’s University Health Network campuses – Bethlehem, Anderson, Miners, Monroe and Warren – were among those hospitals awarded an “A” for their commitment to keeping patients safe and meeting the highest safety standards in the United States.
