Premier Health Hospitals Earn ‘A’s from the Leapfrog Group

Premier Pulse     May 2023

The Leapfrog Group has awarded an “A” safety grade for spring 2023 to three Premier Health hospitals: Atrium Medical Center, Miami Valley Hospital, and Upper Valley Medical Center. This national distinction recognizes the hospitals’ achievements in protecting patients from preventable harm and error.

The Leapfrog Group, an independent national watchdog organization, assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” grade to general hospitals across the country based on more than 30 national performance measures reflecting errors, accidents, injuries and infections, as well as procedures that 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 harm 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.

This is the fourth consecutive “A” rating for Upper Valley Medical Center. Miami Valley Hospital South and Miami Valley Hospital North received a “B” grade.
