"We support frequent monitoring for safety by Leapfrog, which provides simple, understandable "grades" for this important measurement of quality", Dr. Brian Nester, LVHN's president and CEO, said in a news release.

Holyoke Medical Center has helped make MA one of five states with the highest percentage of "A" hospitals for patient safety.

WakeMed's chief quality and medical staff officer, West Paul, said WakeMed expected to be downgraded this time because the Cary hospital experienced an increase in intestinal bacteria infections, particularly among older patients from area nursing homes.

"The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade helps shed light on those hospitals in need of improvement, while also highlighting the safer facilities, to make it easy for patients to choose the best option for their care". "Thank you to Mid Coast Hospital for always putting your patients first". Florida Hospital North Pinellas has also received the Top General Hospital award twice, and is the only hospital in the state of Florida to receive the Top General Hospital award back-to-back for 2016 and 2017.

A panel of medical professionals scores the hospitals on more than two dozen measures, involving both process and outcome, although not all hospitals report on all measures, and then those scores are translated into grades. "Not only are there now three "A" hospitals, but six additional hospitals received a "B" grade, having previously received a "C" or lower".

The "A" rating shows shows that Medical City Weatherford is meeting critical requirements of care and exceeding them, said Medical City Weatherford Community and Public Relations Director Holly Yarborough in a Tuesday interview.

In gauging those same safety measures, the Leapfrog Group gave Geisinger Holy Spirit Hospital a "B" safety grade.

Five acute care hospitals that received an "A" safety grade rating from The Leapfrog Group received "F" ratings in past years, the organization announced April 24.

"This is the only national rating of how well hospitals protect patients from preventable harm and death, such as medical errors, infections, and injuries", Binder said. With a strong patient focus, consistent quality performance, nursing excellence, and award winning care, Rutland Regional remains dedicated to improving the health of families and individuals throughout Rutland County and beyond.

This is the fifth consecutive time Holyoke Medical Center has earned the top designation, something its President Spiros Hatiras credited to an "exemplary team of professionals, who provide excellent care every day to every patient".

"We are pleased to see St. Joseph's and St. Mary's hospitals achieve the only A grades in Tucson".
