Eisenhower Recognized for Patient Safety

Eisenhower Health received an “A” in the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for fall 2021. This national distinction recognizes Eisenhower Health’s achievements in protecting patients from harm and errors in the hospital.

“Eisenhower Health has always remained committed to quality and patient safety,” says Martin Massiello, President and Chief Executive Officer, Eisenhower Health. “To earn an ‘A’ grade by The Leapfrog Group underscores the expertise and commitment of our employees and medical staff to providing safe, high-quality care for our community each and every day.”

The Leapfrog Group, an independent national watchdog organization, assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” grade to general hospitals across the country based on more than thirty national performance measures reflecting errors, injuries, accidents and infections, as well as systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm. 

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program based exclusively on hospital prevention of medical errors and harm to patients. The grading system is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. Grades are updated twice annually, in the fall and spring.

“An ‘A’ Safety Grade is a tremendous achievement, of which this community should be extremely proud,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “I thank the leadership and workforce of Eisenhower Health for its commitment to prioritizing patients and their safety, especially during these trying times.”
