SVRMC Receives an “A” in Patient Safety from the Leapfrog Group

Apr 27, 2016

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. – Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center received the top grade in The Leapfrog Group’s Spring 2015 Hospital Safety Score. This is the hospital’s seventh consecutive “A.”

The Hospital Safety Score uses national performance measures from the LeapfrogA (1) Hospital Survey, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and the American Hospital Association’s Annual Survey and Health Information Technology Supplement.

“We are proud of Sierra Vista’s recent “A” grade, as we believe it recognizes the tireless commitment of our staff and physicians to provide our patients with care that is safe and of the highest quality,” said Joe DeSchryver, CEO of Sierra Vista.

The Hospital Safety Score is an A, B, C, D or F letter grade reflecting how safe hospitals are for patients. The Hospital Safety Score was launched for the first time in June 2012. Eligible hospitals receive a Hospital Safety Score twice per year.
