Queen's Earns ‘A’ Grade for Patient Safety

May 2016

The Queen’s Medical Center was one of 798 hospitals to receive an A, ranking among the safest hospitals in the United States. New Hospital Safety Scores, which assign A, B, C, D and F letter grades to hospitals nationwide and provide a picture of patient safety in the U.S. health care system, were announced by The Leapfrog Group, a national patient safety watchdog.

“The Queen’s Medical Center is very pleased with the hospital safety score from Leapfrog,” said Art Ushijima, President of The Queen’s Medical Center. “Our staff endeavors to assure a safe care environment by consistently putting our patients first, and the recognition by Leapfrog is wonderful acknowledgement of their efforts.”

“ Avoidable deaths in hospitals should be the number one concern of our health care leaders. Hospitals that earn an ‘A’ from Leapfrog are leaders in saving lives, and we commend them and urge their continued vigilance,” said Leah Binder, President and CEO of The Leapfrog Group.
