ORLANDO, Fla., May 1, 2024 – All of AdventHealth’s eligible hospital facilities in Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Volusia counties earned an “A” Hospital Safety Grade in the latest ratings from The Leapfrog Group, a national nonprofit watchdog that sets standards for excellence in patient care.


Leapfrog assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D” or “F” grade to general hospitals across the country based on over 30 national performance measures reflecting errors, accidents, injuries and infections, as well as the systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm.

The hospitals include AdventHealth Altamonte Springs, AdventHealth Apopka, AdventHealth Celebration, AdventHealth Daytona Beach, AdventHealth DeLand, AdventHealth East Orlando, AdventHealth Fish Memorial, AdventHealth Kissimmee, AdventHealth New Smyrna Beach, AdventHealth Orlando and AdventHealth Winter Park.

Additionally, AdventHealth Daytona Beach is the only hospital in the entire state of Florida – and one of just 15 in the nation – to earn an “A” in every grading period since the inception of the Safety Grade in spring 2012.

“This recognition is a testament to our care teams’ commitment to providing high-quality, whole-person care to all we serve,” said AdventHealth Central Florida President and CEO Brian Adams. “I am grateful for all of the hard work our physicians, nurses and all team members put into ensuring our community gets the care they need, when and where they need it.”

“Earning an ‘A’ Grade means AdventHealth’s Central Florida hospitals made a true commitment to put patients first,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “We congratulate the leadership, Board, clinicians, staff and volunteers that all had a role to play in this achievement.”

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program exclusively based on hospital prevention of medical errors, infections and injuries, which kill more than 500 patients a day nationally. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. Grades are updated twice annually, in the fall and spring.
