Perry Hospital Receives an 'A' for Patient Safety for the Spring 2019 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade

May 30, 2019

Perry, Georgia -- Perry Hospital, part of Houston Healthcare, was awarded an ‘A’ from The Leapfrog Group’s spring 2019 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade. The designation recognizes Perry Hospital’s efforts in protecting patients from harm and providing safer health care. The Leapfrog Group is a national nonprofit 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, injuries, accidents, infections and other harms to patients in their care.

“What a great honor to be recognized again for the care we provide to our patients,” says David Campbell, Administrator for Perry Hospital. “The staff and physicians at Perry are dedicated to making sure our patients and their family members are well cared for and uphold our quality standards. We are proud of the care we provide and know that Perry Hospital is making a difference in the lives of our patients, as well as in our community.”

“To be recognized nationally as an ‘A’ hospital is an accomplishment the whole community should take pride in,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “Hospitals that earn an ‘A’ grade are making it a priority to protect patients from preventable medical harm and error. We congratulate hospital leaders, board members, staff, volunteers and clinicians who work 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.
