The Leapfrog Group has awarded AdventHealth Carrollwood with an “A” Hospital Safety Grade for the 15th consecutive time, recognizing it as one of the only 22 hospitals in the country to be awarded an “A” in every Hospital Safety Grade cycle since 2015.

“AdventHealth Carrollwood is dedicated to maintaining a culture of safety and quality that continuously leads to excellent outcomes as we care for our patients, said Erika Skula, President and CEO at AdventHealth Carrollwood. “Continuing to achieve a Leapfrog ‘A’ for 15 consecutive seasons would not be possible without our incredible Carrollwood team members working tirelessly to keep our community safe.”

The Leapfrog Group is an independent national watchdog organization with a 10-year history of assigning letter grades to general hospitals throughout the United States, based on a hospital’s ability to prevent medical errors and harm to patients. The grading system is peer-reviewed, fully transparent, and free to the public. Hospital Safety Grade results are based on more than 30 national performance measures and are updated each fall and spring.

“A hospital receiving consistent ‘A’ grades for an entire decade is a rare and remarkable achievement,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “This persistence demonstrates a hospital’s dedication to continuously prioritize patient safety, while adapting to an evolving healthcare landscape and facing the challenges of a global pandemic. This hospital and community should be momentously proud.”
