Twin Cities Hospital receives an "A" grade from Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade.

May 17, 2021

Twin Cities Hospital received an “A” grade in the spring 2021 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade, a national distinction recognizing Twin Cities Hospital’s achievements protecting patients from errors, injuries, accidents, and infections. The Leapfrog Group is an independent national watchdog organization committed to health care quality and safety. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” grade to all general hospitals across the country and is updated every six months. It is the only hospital ratings program based exclusively on hospitals’ prevention of medical errors and other harms to patients in their care.

“We have had a stellar year of accomplishments related to quality and patient safety at Twin Cities Hospital. These accomplishments are not possible without the hard work and dedication of our employees, physicians, and volunteers each and every day,” said David Whalen, CEO of Twin Cities Hospital.

“An ‘A’ safety grade is an elite designation that your community should be proud of,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “The past year has been extraordinarily difficult for hospitals, but Twin Cities Hospital shows us it is possible to keep a laser focus on patients and their safety, no matter what it takes.”

Developed under the guidance of a national Expert Panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses up to 27 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,700 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.

Twin Cities Hospital was awarded an “A” grade today when Leapfrog updated grades for spring 2021. To see Twin Cities Hospital’s full grade details and access patient tips for staying safe in the hospital, visit Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade and follow The Leapfrog Group on Twitter and Facebook.
