Broward Health Imperial Point continues to receive national recognition for its commitment to patient safety after receiving an “A” rating for protecting patients. It was the second consecutive year Broward Health Imperial Point received the top rating from The Leapfrog Group, a non-profit organization that advocates for quality healthcare.
“The healthcare heroes at Broward Health Imperial Point amaze me every day, and this is another example of how our team collaborates with our incredible caregivers to provide the best possible care for our patients,” says Randy Gross, CEO of Broward Health Imperial Point. “Achieving the ‘A’ rating back-to-back further demonstrates our commitment to caring for the community.”
LeapFrog’s Hospital Safety Grade determines the rating based on 27 factors to determine the grades for more than 2,600 hospitals around the nation. The ratings were based on how each hospital performed regarding protecting patients from medical errors, injuries, accidents and infections.
“An ‘A’ safety grade is an elite designation that your community should be proud of,” says Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “The past year has been extraordinarily difficult for hospitals, but Broward Health Imperial Point shows us it is possible to keep a laser focus on patients and their safety, no matter what it takes.”
Broward Health Imperial Point has been providing healthcare at its 204-bed hospital in Fort Lauderdale since 1972.
