Recognition Demonstrates Steward Health Care’s Commitment to Deliver World Class Care and Exceptional Patient Experience

Good Samaritan Medical Center, a Steward family hospital, was awarded an ‘A’ from The Leapfrog Group’s spring 2019 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade. The designation recognizes Good Samaritan Medical Center efforts in protecting patients from harm and providing safer health care. Good Samaritan Medical Center is part of Steward Health Care – the largest private, tax paying physician-led health care network in the United States – which leverages technology, innovation, and care coordination to provide the highest quality care and safety in communities where patients live. “We are thrilled to receive an ‘A’ from the Leapfrog Group. This recognition reflects our commitment to delivering top quality care and keeping our patients safe every day,” said Marisela Marrero, M.D., President of Good Samaritan Medical Center. “We could not achieve this without the unwavering dedication and collaboration of our entire team of physicians, nurses and staff. I congratulate the Good Samaritan team on this achievement and for their ongoing focus on keeping our patients safe.”
 

“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.
