Schneck Earns Seventh Consecutive ‘A’ Safety Rating from Leapfrog Group
June 11, 2019
Schneck Medical Center has been awarded its seventh consecutive ‘A’ for quality and patient safety from The Leapfrog Group—a national nonprofit organization committed to improving healthcare quality and safety for consumers and purchasers The designation recognizes Schneck’s efforts in protecting patients from harm and providing safer healthcare.
 
The ‘A’ grade is one of the most meaningful honors a hospital can achieve, and one of the most valuable indicators for patients looking for a safe place to receive care. The grade is designed to give the public information they can use to protect themselves and their families.
 
The Safety Grade is developed under the guidance of a national expert panel using 28 measures of publicly available hospital safety data. The panel assigns grades of ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’, ‘D’ or ‘F’ to more than 2,600 U.S. hospitals based on their performance in preventing medical errors, injuries, accidents, infections and other harms to patients in their care.
 
“Earning an ‘A’ for seven consecutive years is a testament to Schneck’s dedication to our patients and our commitment to safety and quality of care,” said Warren Forgey, President/CEO, Schneck Medical Center.
 
“To be recognized nationally as an ‘A’ hospital is an accomplishment the whole community should take pride in,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “Hospitals that earn an ‘A’ grade are making it a priority to protect patients from preventable medical harm and error. We congratulate hospital leaders, board members, staff, volunteers and clinicians who work so hard to earn this A.”
