Leapfrog grades released for OSF hospitals
OSF Little Company of Mary earns ‘A’ grade; five earn 'B' rankings for spring 2023
The biannual Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades for the spring of 2023 have been announced by The Leapfrog Group, a national watchdog organization for patient safety. Nearly 3,000 hospitals across the U.S. are assigned A, B, C, D and F letter grades.
This spring, OSF HealthCare Little Company of Mary Medical Center in Evergreen Park, received an ‘A’ grade.
Additionally, five OSF HealthCare facilities achieved a ‘B’ grade:
· OSF Heart of Mary Medical Center, Urbana
· OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center, Rockford
· OSF Saint Francis Medical Center, Peoria
· OSF St. Joseph Medical Center, Bloomington
· OSF St. Mary Medical Center, Galesburg
The study only includes hospitals of a certain size that treat a minimum number of specific conditions; therefore, some OSF HealthCare facilities were excluded from the ratings.
Hospitals are assigned A, B, C, D and F letter grades based on national performance measures reflecting errors, accidents, injuries and infections, as well as systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm. These measures include patient care management, medication safety, and frequency of healthcare-associated infection. The biannual report is calculated by a panel of safety experts, peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public.
