OCH Regional Medical Center

The Leapfrog Group, a national nonprofit health care ratings organization, has released new Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades and granted Landmark Medical Center an "A" for its commitment to keeping patients safe and meeting the highest safety standards in the United States.

In Kentucky, 13 hospitals received an A grade from Leapfrog.

The hospitals which received Ds are Hanover Hospital in York County, St. Joseph Regional Health Network in Berks County and Mercy Health System-Nazereth Hospital in Northampton County.

Pen Bay Medical Center, Rockport.

Brazile Alleges Clinton Rigged Democratic Primary
This agreement was between Hillary For America , the campaign arm, a separate entity, Hillary Victory Fund , and the DNC. But the agreement was apparently signed in August 2015, nearly a year before Clinton clinched the nomination.

For the 12th consecutive time, Minden Medical Center has again each been honored with an "A" grade in the National Hospital Safety Grades, which rates how well hospitals protect patients from preventable medical errors, injuries and infections.

Patient safety experts use 27 measures of hospital safety data to assign A, B, C, D or F grades to 2,632 hospitals across the country and update those grades twice a year.

"As Maine purchasers continue to seek out high quality care for their beneficiaries, this kind of transparency helps inform strategic decisions about where to direct patients for care", he said.

The Leapfrog Group this week released its safety report card for US hospitals. Cape Regional Medical Center also maintained a B grade from the spring. "An "A" Safety Grade recognizes hospitals for this accomplishment", said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. It is calculated by top patient safety experts, peer reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public.

Leapfrog is a nonprofit organization that says it is committed to driving quality, safety, and transparency in the US health system.
