Liberty Hospital has received an “A” grade for its dedication to patient safety from The Leapfrog Group, which rates how well hospitals protect patients from preventable medical errors, injuries and infections. Among hospitals in the Northland, it was ranked the highest for safety.
"We appreciate being honored for the commitment of our providers and staff to keep our patients safe,” said President and CEO David Feess. "This award is one of the highest possible for a hospital, and we work tenaciously to provide high-quality care.”
The Hospital Safety Grade is compiled under the guidance of leading experts and administered by The Leapfrog Group, a national, nonprofit hospital safety watchdog. The score is free to the public and designed to give consumers information they can use to inform themselves and their families when facing a hospital stay. More than 2,600 acute-care hospitals nationwide are graded twice each year, and grades are based on the review of 27 measures.
