AdventHealth hospitals in tri-county area receive an 'A' for patient safety in Spring 2019 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade

.

AdventHealth campuses in the tri-county area -- Altamonte Springs, Apopka, Celebration, East Orlando, Kissimmee, Orlando and Winter Park -- were awarded an 'A' from The Leapfrog Group's Spring 2019 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade. The designation recognizes AdventHealth's efforts in protecting patients from harm and providing safer health care. The Leapfrog Group is a national nonprofit organization committed to improving health care quality and safety for consumers and purchasers. The Safety Grade assigns an 'A', 'B', 'C', 'D' or 'F' grade to hospitals across the country based on their performance in preventing medical errors, injuries, accidents, infections and other harms to patients in their care.

"AdventHealth's success is the direct result of our team members and their hard work and commitment to delivering first-rate, whole-person care," said Daryl Tol, president and CEO of AdventHealth's Central Florida Division.

"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."

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 U.S. acute-care hospitals twice per year. The Hospital Safety Grade's methodology is peer-reviewed and fully transparent, and the results are free to the public.
