Prime Healthcare Hospitals Recognized Among Nation's Best By The Leapfrog Group

(MENAFN- ForPressRelease) Prime Healthcare today announces that 27 of its hospitals across 12 states were awarded an 'A' Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for Spring 2024. This national distinction recognizes Prime Healthcare's hospitals among the top in the nation in protecting patients from preventable harm and errors.
In the last year, 81 percent of Prime's hospitals earned 'A' grades from The Leapfrog Group.
The Leapfrog Group assigns grades on an 'A' through 'F' scale to hospitals across the country based on over 30 national performance measures reflecting errors, accidents, injuries, and infections, as well as harm-prevention systems.
"Everyone who works at Prime Healthcare's hospitals should be proud of this 'A' Hospital Safety Grade," said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. "It takes complete dedication at every level and an ironclad commitment to putting patients first. I thank Prime Healthcare, its leadership, clinicians, staff, and volunteers for caring so deeply for its patients and their safety."
Twenty-one of the Prime Healthcare hospitals earning top grades this spring have maintained a track record securing straight 'A' grades over consecutive seasons. Of note, Centinela Hospital Medical Center (CA), East Liverpool City Hospital (OH), and Lake Huron Medical Center (MI) have demonstrated unparalleled dedication to patient safety year after year while earning straight 'A' grades since 2018.
Further, Prime is proud to announce the following hospitals have earned 'A' grades, improving upon performance from the last grading period, including: Dallas Medical Center (TX); Lehigh Regional Medical Center (FL); Lower Bucks Hospital (PA); Saint Clare's Dover Hospital (NJ); Saint Michael's Medical Center (NJ); and Shasta Regional Medical Center (CA).
"This prestigious level of recognition underscores our unwavering commitment to providing exceptional quality and safety in patient care," said Sunny Bhatia, MD, President and Chief Medical Officer of Prime Healthcare. "This achievement is a testament to the collective efforts of our dedicated staff, clinicians, and leadership teams, whose commitment to patient well-being drives our success. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to each individual who contributed to this national recognition."
