Morris Hospital has received another ‘A’ on the most recent Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade that was released April 29, the hospital’s sixth consecutive since fall of 2018.

This national distinction recognizes Morris Hospital’s achievements in protecting patients from errors, injuries, accidents, and infections. The Leapfrog Group is an independent national watchdog organization committed to health care quality and safety.

“Even during the most difficult times and a global pandemic, Morris Hospital employees and Medical Staff never waiver on their clinical and quality outcomes focus,” says Kim Landers, Vice President of Patient Care Services and Chief Nurse Executive at Morris Hospital & Healthcare Centers. “We could not be happier to receive our 6th straight Grade A from Leapfrog. This is a testament to our great team who always pushes for better results for our community. We are so grateful to our staff for this recognition.”

The Safety Grade assigns an A, B, C, D or F grade to all general hospitals across the country and is updated every six months. The grade is based on a hospital’s performance in preventing medical errors and other harm to patients in their care.
