Salt Lake Regional Medical Center Earns “A” Grade for Patient Safety from the 2017 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade

New Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades were announced this week by The Leapfrog Group, a national patient safety watchdog. Salt Lake Regional Medical Center received an “A,” ranking them among the safest hospitals in the United States. The Leap Frog Safety Grade assigns A, B, C, D and F letter grades to hospitals nationwide.

“Salt Lake Regional Medical Center is dedicated to providing the highest quality care to our patients,” said Dale Johns, CEO of Salt Lake Regional Medical Center. “We are the only hospital in Salt Lake County to earn an A grade this year, which motivates us to continue our commitment to patient safety standards, including making positive changes for the benefit of each patient.”

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade seeks to help consumers make informed decisions about their medical care by providing data and research on how hospitals protect patients from errors, injuries, accidents, and infections. These safety grades also motivate local hospitals to uphold the highest safety standards and remain transparent about their safety and quality.

Additionally, The Leapfrog Group announced that Salt Lake Regional Medical Center has been named a Top General Hospital. Widely acknowledged as one of the most prestigious distinctions a hospital can receive in the U.S., the recognition showcases Salt Lake Regional Medical Center’s commitment to patient safety and quality. The selection of Top Hospitals is based on the results of the Leapfrog Hospital Survey.
