SOMC Earns “A” Safety Score from Leapfrog GroupPosted on 11/08/2019

We are proud to announce Southern Ohio Medical Center recently received a Hospital Safety Score of “A,” based on information obtained by The Leapfrog Group.

The Leapfrog Hospital Survey is the gold standard for comparing hospitals’ performance on national standards, and assigns “A,” “B,” “C,” “D” or “F” grades to more than 2,600 hospitals in the United States.

“We are very pleased to have earned an ‘A’ Hospital Safety Score,” Christy Timberlake, administrative director of SOMC Safety Services, said. “Ensuring our patient’s safety is a priority for all of us at SOMC. It is rewarding to see our efforts recognized by such a highly respected organization.” 

In addition to earning a Hospital Safety Score of “A,” SOMC also received scores that surpassed state and national averages in quality measures, including those for surgery and medication safety, readmissions, patient falls and more. SOMC was also the only hospital in the region to receive an “A” rating from The Leapfrog Group.
