Jeanes Hospital has earned an “A” Hospital Safety Grade for Fall 2019 from the Leapfrog Group – an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to providing health care consumers with hospital quality and safety data.
“Jeanes is proud to be among the top performing ‘A’ hospitals in the country, which means we do a better job at preventing errors and achieving the highest standards of patient safety – a level of dependable care which Leapfrog urges consumers to consider when choosing their hospital,” said Marc P. Hurowitz, DO, MBA, FAAFP, President and CEO of Jeanes Hospital.
Leapfrog works with patient safety experts from across the country and selects dozens of process and outcome safety measures from national reporting programs, including the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), to produce a single letter grade representing a hospital’s overall performance in keeping patients safe from preventable harm and medical errors.
“This important accolade not only distinguishes Jeanes Hospital as a high-performing institution, but also speaks to the hard work of every department and everyone who contributes to our mission,” added Dr. Hurowitz. “This award provides reinforcement of the high-quality care available at Jeanes and validates our work as we consistently strive for excellence in all we do.”
