Cleveland Clinic’s Weston Hospital Nets Top Rating in Patient Safety

Cleveland Clinic’s Weston Hospital continues to be recognized as one of South Florida’s best hospitals after receiving an “A” rating for its commitment to patient safety.

The “A” rating came from The Leapfrog Group, a nonprofit organization that advocates for quality healthcare. The recent recognition came after the hospital received the No. 1 ranking from U.S. News & World Report’s best hospital rankings for 2020-21 in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale area.

“We are deeply honored to receive this recognition,” says Rodolfo J. Blandon, MD, MBA, president of Cleveland Clinic Weston. “Each member of our team is committed to ensuring that our standards remain high so that patients have a unique experience each time they come to us.”

LeapFrog’s Hospital Safety Grade used 27 factors to determine the A through F grades for more than 2,600 hospitals around the nation. The grades were based on how the hospital performed protecting patients from medical errors, injuries, accidents and infections.

Cleveland Clinic’s Weston Hospital had previously received a “B” grade in patient safety from the LeapFrog Group.

With locations throughout South Florida, Cleveland Clinic staffs more than 250 physicians in the area with its Weston hospital offering outpatient surgery and a 24/7 emergency department.
