Memorial Hospital receives 'A' for patient safety

In Kentucky, 13 hospitals received an A grade from Leapfrog.

The Leapfrog Group, a national nonprofit health care ratings organization, today released new Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades.

The letter grades are assigned to hospitals nationwide based on their performance in preventing medical errors, infections and other harms.

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 30 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,600 USA hospitals twice per year. "Minden Medical Center takes that achievement one step further by earning an A year after year", said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group.

NYC terror suspect had run-ins with the law in Missouri
Court records show troopers put out a warrant out for his arrest in April of a year ago when he didn't respond to the ticket. Saipov was at a scale house off Interstate 29 near the 24-mile marker when he was given the ticket, Stosberg said.

"We were very pleased to have received an "A" from Leapfrog, as their findings confirm that our mission to deliver exceptional healthcare to every person we have the privilege to serve must include systems that consistently concentrate on patient safety", said Chief Executive Officer, Cristina Jimenez.

Additionally, three OSF HealthCare facilities, OSF HealthCare Saint Anthony Medical Center in Rockford, OSF HealthCare Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria, and OSF HealthCare Saint Anthony's Health Center in Alton each received a "B" letter grade, ranking them among the safest hospitals in the United States.

Top patient safety experts, peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public, calculate it.

Geisinger Medical Center (for its main hospital in Danville); the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania; Lancaster General; Penn State Hershey Medical Center; UPMC Pinnacle (PinnacleHealth System during the period covered by the grades) for these hospitals: UPMC Pinnacle Harrisburg, UPMC Pinnacle Community General, UPMC Pinnacle West Shore, and UPMC Pinnacle Carlisle (formerly Carlisle Regional Health System); Thomas Jefferson University Hospital; and WellSpan Gettysburg Hospital.
