Area hospital safety assessments vary from A to D letter grades

Area hospitals received some varying grades on a new assessment of their safety for patients.

LeapFrog gives hospitals a letter grade of A, B, C, D or F based on 27 measures of patient safety, including patient care management, medication safety, frequency of healthcare-associated infection, and maternity care.

OSF Saint Francis Medical Center ranked the highest among Peoria hospitals, with a B in Fall 2018.

“We are pleased but not surprised at these high ratings,” said OSF HealthCare Saint Francis Medical Center President Bob Anderson in a statement. “Providing the highest level of care has always been our focus and it’s great to see our efforts recognized in this way.”

UnityPoint Health – Methodist received a C, while UnityPoint Health – Proctor got a D with low ratings in practices to prevent errors, and communication with doctors and other hospital staff.

In Bloomington-Normal, OSF Saint Joseph Medical Center received an A, and Advocate BroMenn got a B.

Rounding out the grades of eligible area hospitals are Graham Hospital in Canton with an A, OSF St. Mary’s Medical Center in Galesburg with an A, Illinois Valley Community Hospital in Peru with a B, and OSF Saint Elizabeth Medical Center in Ottawa with a B.

Two Chicago-area hospitals received the state’s only F grades.
