For over 20 years, The Leapfrog Group has collected, analyzed, and published data on safety and quality in order to push the healthcare industry forward.
Each year, the organization issues the Leapfrog Hospital Survey, which assesses hospital safety, quality, and efficiency based on national performance measures that are important to health care consumers. The survey results are publicly reported and provide hospitals with information to benchmark their progress in improving the care they deliver.
The highest performing hospitals on the Leapfrog Hospital Survey are recognized annually with the prestigious Leapfrog Top Hospital award. Top Hospitals have exemplary systems in place to prevent medication errors, higher quality on maternity care, and lower infection rates, among other laudable qualities.
”McLeod Health Cheraw has received an “A” rating for the Fall 2022 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade,” says Bren Lowe, Chief Executive Officer, McLeod Health Cheraw. “This national distinction celebrates McLeod Health Cheraw’s achievements in protecting patients from preventable harm and error in the hospital.
This recognition underscores the relentless commitment of our entire staff. Our quality outcomes continue to improve, and that translates into better, more effective and safer care for those who entrust us with their health needs.
McLeod Health Cheraw’s pursuit of quality improvements is never-ending, and our staff is dedicated to delivering the highest level of medical services to the region.”
