Sharp HealthCare’s acute-care hospitals received top marks in a national safety survey announced by the Leapfrog Group, a national organization that tracks and promotes progress in the quality and safety of American health care. The Leapfrog assessment includes 30 measures, including patient satisfaction scores – all currently in use by national measurement and reporting programs -- and rates how well hospitals protect patients from errors, injuries and infections.

Leapgfrog Hospital Safety Grades (A, B, C, D and F) are assigned to more than 2,600 general acute-care hospitals across the U.S. twice annually, in the spring and fall. The Fall 2019 Leapfrog Safety Grades for Sharp include:

“A” for Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center

“A” for Sharp Coronado Hospital

“B” for Sharp Grossmont Hospital

“A” for Sharp Memorial Hospital

“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.”
