The latest hospital safety scores from the Leapfrog Group are out, and six hospitals affiliated with UNC Health Care received top “A” grades for their work in protecting patients and delivering excellent care.

UNC Medical Center in Chapel Hill, UNC REX Healthcare in Raleigh, Johnston Health in Smithfield and Clayton, UNC Rockingham Health in Eden and Wayne UNC Health in Goldsboro all received top marks. Congrats to Wayne, which moved up to an A for the first time.

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 28 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign A-F grades to more than 2,600 U.S. hospitals twice per year. Nationwide, 855 hospitals received A grades on Leapfrog’s Fall 2018 report card, which was announced today.

UNC REX is the only hospital in North Carolina – and one of only 42 across the country – to receive straight A’s since Leapfrog began grading hospitals for safety in 2012.

This recognition would not be possible without the dedication of our coworkers. We thank you for your continued commitment to patient safety and quality.
