Member News — The Valley Hospital Earns an “A” for Patient Safety
November 8th, 2018

The Valley Hospital is proud to have been recognized with an “A” grade for patient safety for the thirteenth time from The Leapfrog Group‘s Fall 2018 Hospital Safety Grade. Valley was one of 855 hospitals to receive an “A,” ranking it among the safest hospitals in the United States.

The Leapfrog Group’s Hospital Safety Grade assigns an A, B, C, D or F grade to hospitals across the country based on their performance in preventing medical errors, infections and other harms among patients in their care.

“We are proud to have once again received an ‘A’ for patient safety,” said Audrey Meyers, President and CEO, The Valley Hospital and Valley Health System. “This top grade is a result of Valley’s longstanding commitment to ensuring patient safety and high-quality care.”

“Leapfrog’s Hospital Safety Grade recognizes hospitals like Valley that focus on advancing patient safety,” said Leah Binder, President and CEO, The Leapfrog Group. “This ranking provides an important resource for patients and a benchmark for hospitals to determine how care at one hospital compares to others in a region.”

Developed under the guidance of an Expert Panel, Leapfrog’s Hospital Safety Grade uses 28 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to approximately 2,600 U.S. hospitals twice per year. The Hospital Safety Grade’s methodology is peer reviewed and fully transparent, and the results are free to the public.
