May 10, 2022 — Englewood Health received an “A” Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for spring 2022. The ‘A’ rating is a national distinction that Englewood Health has achieved consecutively for over two years from The Leapfrog Group, an independent nonprofit organization committed to driving quality, safety, and transparency in the U.S. health system.
“We are honored to receive an ‘A’ rating from the Leapfrog Group again,” says Kathleen Kaminsky, MS, RN, NE-BC, senior vice president, patient care services and chief nursing officer at Englewood Health. “This mark of distinction reflects the commitment of our entire health care team to prioritizing patient safety.”
“We’re proud to see our team’s dedication to ensuring the best possible patient outcomes once again reflected in Leapfrog’s ‘A’ designation for this rating period,” says Jamie Ketas, vice president for quality at Englewood Health.
“I thank the workforce and leadership of Englewood Health for sustained commitment to patient safety, day in and day out,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “An ‘A’ Safety Grade is an outstanding achievement, and one that is not possible without a 24/7 effort by the entire health care workforce to protect patients from harm. This community should be proud.”
