DANVILLE, Pa. – Four Geisinger hospitals were recently recognized for their commitment to patients’ safety. Geisinger Medical Center, Geisinger Bloomsburg Hospital, Geisinger Shamokin Area Community Hospital and Geisinger Lewistown Hospital all received “A” Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades for spring 2022. This national distinction recognizes the hospitals’ achievements in protecting patients from preventable harm and error in the hospital. 

“This recognition highlights the commitment our staff has for providing great care to our patients in a safe manner,” said Megan Brosious, chief administrative officer for Geisinger’s Central Region. “Patient safety is always a top priority for us, and we continue to make improvements and invest in ways to meet the needs of our community.”

The Leapfrog Group, an independent national watchdog organization, assigns a grade of A, B, C, D or F to general hospitals across the country based on more than 30 national performance measures reflecting errors, accidents, injuries and infections, as well as the systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm. 

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program based exclusively on hospital prevention of medical errors and harms to patients. The grading system is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. Grades are updated twice annually, in the fall and spring.

“As our health care system continues to feel the strain of the pandemic, I thank the workforce and leadership of these Geisinger hospitals for sustained commitment to patient safety, day in and day out,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “An ‘A’ Safety Grade is an outstanding achievement, and one that is not possible without a 24/7 effort by the entire health care workforce to protect patients from harm. This community should be proud.”
