On Wednesday, November 17, 2021, the Southpointe CEO Association (SPCEOA) hosted over 150 regional business leaders for the organization’s annual ‘Spirit of Southpointe Award and Reception’ featuring Lucas B. Piatt, Owner and CEO of Millcraft.
Washington Health System (WHS) is proud to announce that both of their hospitals, WHS Washington Hospital and WHS Greene, received an “A” Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for fall of 2021. This national distinction recognizes WHS Washington Hospital and WHS Greene’s achievements in protecting patients from harm and error in the hospital.
The Leapfrog Group, an independent national watchdog organization, assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” grade to general hospitals across the country based on over thirty national performance measures reflecting errors, injuries, accidents and infections, as well as systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm.
The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program based exclusively on hospital prevention of medical errors and harms to patients. The grading system is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. Grades are updated twice annually, in the fall and spring.
“An ‘A’ Safety Grade is a tremendous achievement, of which this community should be extremely proud,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “I thank the leadership and workforce of WHS Washington Hospital and WHS Greene for its commitment to prioritizing patients and their safety, especially during these trying times.”
