Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades, which assigns A, B, C, D and F letter grades to hospitals nationally for patient safety, announced that St. Joseph Mercy Livingston recently received an “A” ranking on its Fall 2019 scorecard.  St. Joe’s was awarded an “A” for its commitment to keeping patients safe and meeting the highest safety standards in the United States.

“‘A’ hospitals show us their leadership is protecting patients from preventable medical harm and error,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “It takes genuine commitment at every level – from clinicians to administrators to the board of directors – and we congratulate the teams who have worked so hard to earn this A.”

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

St. Joseph Mercy Livingston’s sister hospitals, St. Joseph Mercy Oakland, St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea, Mercy Health Saint Mary’s and Mercy Health Muskegon campuses also received “A” rankings on their Fall 2019 scorecards.
