AdventHealth North Pinellas Earns An ‘A’ from Leapfrog

Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade A

AdventHealth North Pinellas has earned an “A” Hospital Safety Grade 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.

"At AdventHealth North Pinellas, our team members approach every patient with the same level of care that they would offer to their own families. Safety is a core value, and our commitment to delivering high-quality, whole-person health care remains unwavering," said Ryan Quattlebaum, President and CEO of AdventHealth North Pinellas. "We are honored by this 'A' Hospital Safety Grade from The Leapfrog Group and it reflects the dedication and expertise of our entire health care team."

“Earning an ‘A’ Grade means AdventHealth North Pinellas 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 that 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.
