The Leapfrog Group announced hospital saftey grades. The national watchdog organization for patient safety assigns A, B, C, D and F letter grades in order to provide a complete picture of patient safety.
This spring, four OSF HealthCare facilities achieved an A grade: St. Joseph Medical Center in Bloomington, St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria, St. Mary’s Medical Center in Galesburg and Sacred Heart Medical Center in Danville.
Four earned a B: St. Anthony Medical Center in Rockford, St. Elizabeth Medical Center in Ottawa, St. Anthony’s Health Center in Alton and Heart of Mary Medical Center in Urbana.
These facilities have the honor of being among the safest hospitals in the country.
Leapfrog evaluates more than 2,600 hospitals each year. An expert panel develops the grades based on 30 measures of publicly available hospital safety data.
