Saint Francis Healthcare Hospitals Receive “A” Grades for Patient Safety

May 4, 2016

DAVE ARCHER

Saint Francis Hospital-Bartlett and Saint Francis Hospital-Memphis have been honored with “A” Hospital Safety Scores by The Leapfrog Group, an independent hospital industry watchdog. They were the only two hospitals in the Memphis area to receive an “A” grade. In Tennessee, just 24 hospitals received an “A” grade.

Saint Francis Hospital-Memphis was recognized as a “Straight A” hospital for being one of just 98 hospitals nationwide to have achieved an “A” grade in every grading period since 2012. Saint Francis Hospital-Bartlett received their fifth consecutive “A” grade.

The Hospital Safety Score was calculated under the guidance of the nation’s leading experts on patient safety and is administered by The Leapfrog Group. The Hospital Safety Score is designed to provide consumers with information they need when making decisions about a hospital stay.

“The physicians and staff of Saint Francis Healthcare are focused on patient safety and providing our patients with excellent care,” said David Archer, Saint Francis Healthcare CEO. “We are proud of the consistent “A” grades that we have achieved at both Saint Francis hospitals.”

The Leapfrog Group’s nine-member Blue Ribbon Expert Panel calculates the Hospital Safety Score. The panel uses 28 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to produce a single score that represents a hospital’s overall capacity to keep patients safe from preventable harm. More than 2,500 hospitals have been assigned scores, with less than one-third receiving an “A” grade.
