Hospital Has Achieved Top Safety Grade for 22 Rating Periods

May 1, 2024 — Englewood Hospital has received an ‘A’ Hospital Safety Grade from The Leapfrog Group for spring 2024.

Thank you to our entire team whose commitment to the safety of our patients is evident in this top safety grade.”

Tina Bloemer, MSN, RN, CPHQ, CPHRM, FASHRM, vice president for quality at Englewood Health, said “Englewood Hospital is committed to safeguarding our patients and ensuring consistent, high-quality care. Safety is everyone’s job, and our team members are earnest in their personal commitment to prioritizing patient safety. Receiving this ‘A’ grade, once again, is a national recognition of the entire team’s dedication to delivering quality care day in and day out.”

“Everyone who works at Englewood Hospital should be proud of this ‘A’ Hospital Safety Grade,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “It takes complete dedication at every level, and an ironclad commitment to putting patients first. I thank Englewood Hospital, its leadership, clinicians, staff, and volunteers for caring so deeply for its patients and their safety.”

The Leapfrog Group updates hospital safety grades twice annually, in the spring and fall. To see Englewood Hospital’s full grade details and to access patient tips for staying safe in hospitals, visit HospitalSafetyGrade.org.
