“The Leapfrog Group survey is the gold standard for measuring hospital performance in the areas of patient safety, quality and resource utilization. I am particularly proud that we have earned an A rating from the organization, as it reflects the constant commitment and hard work that the Wheeling Hospital community invests in providing safe, quality health care to the residents of our region,” said Ron Violi, Wheeling Hospital chief executive officer.
Leapfrog studied health care results and other data from 2,522 U.S. general hospitals.
In addition, Leapfrog incorporated results and data from three other health care organizations, including the national Centers for Disease Control.
Of the 2,522 hospitals issued a safety score, 804 earned an A; 668 scored a B; 878 earned a C; 150 scored a D; and 22 received an F.
