Eisenhower Health received an “A” in the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for fall 2022. This national distinction recognizes Eisenhower Health’s achievements in protecting patients from harm and errors in the hospital.
“Eisenhower Health is extremely proud to earn this recognition once again,” says Martin Massiello, President and Chief Executive Officer, Eisenhower Health. “Our team’s collaborative efforts in providing safe, high quality care, treatment and services with compassion and empathy has been our mission for more than five decades. An “A” Safety Grade from The Leapfrog Group underscores their hard work and dedication to our patients — making safe care a reality every day.”
The Leapfrog Group is an independent national watchdog organization with a 10-year history of assigning letter grades to general hospitals throughout the United States, based on a hospital’s ability to prevent medical errors and harm to patients. The grading system — A, B, C, D, or F — is peer-reviewed, fully transparent, and free to the public. Hospital Safety Grade results are based on more than 30 national performance measures and are updated each fall and spring.
“I applaud the hospital leadership and workforce for their strong commitment to safety and transparency,” says Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “An ‘A’ Safety Grade is a sign that hospitals are continuously evaluating their performance, so that they can best protect patients. Your hospital team should be extremely proud of their dedication and achievement.”
