October 31, 2017 — Englewood Hospital and Medical Center has earned an “A” designation from The Leapfrog Group, a national nonprofit health care ratings organization, for the 12th consecutive time since 2012 — one of only 59 hospitals in the United States and 3 in New Jersey to achieve this record.
“As the healthcare industry continues to evolve, our efforts to improve patient safety and quality are unwavering,” said Warren Geller, president and CEO of Englewood Hospital and Medical Center. “Earning an “A” rating from the Leapfrog Group for the 12th straight scoring period is a testament to the tireless efforts of our entire staff that work to ensure that our patients receive the best, and safest, medical care.”
“We applaud all hospitals that earn an A for safety, a significant achievement. Englewood Hospital and Medical Center takes that achievement one step further by earning an A year after year,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group.
Developed under the guidance of an expert panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 27 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign A, B, C, D and F grades to more than 2,600 U.S. hospitals twice per year. It is calculated by top patient-safety experts, peer reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public.
