"An "A" grade from The Leapfrog Group is the gold standard for patient safety and a huge achievement", said Lori J. Morgan, MD, MBA, president and CEO, Huntington Hospital.
Of more than 2,600 hospitals graded nationwide, 32 percent earned an "A", 24 percent earned a "B", 37 percent a "C", 6 percent a "D" and just under 1 percent an "F". Three hospitals earned a D and two earned an F. IL sits at No. 12, up from No. 15 in the spring, on Leapfrog's state rankings list, which compares the number of "A" hospitals in a state with its total number of graded hospitals. We addressed gaps in service; were transparent in providing hospital data; appointed patients to governing committees; improved our ICU coverage, and administered hospital-wide patient safety surveys, among other things.

Developed under the guidance of a National Expert Panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 28 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,600 USA hospitals twice per year. This information is also used within Catholic Health to continuously monitor and improve quality outcomes throughout its hospitals. New Jersey now holds the top spot, but ranked 17th in the spring.
