Alhambra Hospital Medical Center is once again awarded an "A" for Patient Safety

Alhambra Hospital Medical Center was once again awarded an "A" from The Leapfrog Group's Hospital Safety Grade. This is the second consecutive time (Fall, 2018 and Spring, 2019) that Alhambra Hospital is recognized for its efforts in protecting patients from harm and meeting the highest safety standards in the United States. The Leapfrog Group is a national 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, infections and other harms among patients in their care.

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Score recognition is representative of our commitment to delivering the highest level of quality patient care. "Our everyday goal is to exceed our patients expectations by delivering outstanding and safe medical care to every patient, every time," said Iris Lai, Chief Executive Officer of Alhambra Hospital Medical Center.

Leapfrog's Hospital Safety Grades recognize hospitals like Alhambra Hospital Medical Center that focus on advancing patient safety. "This ranking provides an important resource for patients, and a benchmark for hospitals, to determine how care at one hospital compares to others in the region," said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. "Hospitals that earn an 'A' Hospital Safety Grade deserve to be recognized for their efforts in preventing medical harm and errors."

"We're very pleased to receive the highest rating for patient safety in the latest Hospital Safety Score," said Dennis Chan, M.D., Chief of Staff of Alhambra Hospital Medical Center. "Our entire medical staff and team here at Alhambra Hospital Medical Center put patient safety at the top of the list each day. It's our number one priority as we strive to provide quality health care to our communities."

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