Mary & Elizabeth Hospital (C). North Suburban has been honored by the Women's Choice Awards as one of America's Best ERs and one of America's Best Hospitals for Patient Safety.
The hospital earned an "A" grade from The Leapfrog Group, a nonprofit organization that evaluates hospitals around the nation on safety, quality of care and resources.
"Teams at Norton Healthcare are focused on providing safe and quality care for our patients and constantly monitor ways in which we can improve". Franklin Memorial Hospital in Farmington also received a B, the same grade it had received in the fall.
Mr. Phillips noted that the hospitals made a decision to not participate in Leapfrog's data collection, which he said was not to their advantage.
The grades are meant to empower consumers. "The good news is that tens of thousands of lives have been saved because of progress on patient safety", Leah Binder, president and chief executive officer of the Leapfrog Group, said in a statement. I am happy that Leapfrog has recognized our work toward improvement. That's down from an estimated 205,000 avoidable deaths in 2016, Leapfrog said. "The bad news is that there's still a lot of needless death and harm in American hospitals".
The District ranked 47th in the country, with no hospitals receiving an A grade.
Nationwide, 26% of hospitals earned a B, 36% earned a C, 6% earned a D and less than 1% earned an F. Color-coded gauges show how each hospital performed - from below average to above average - on the various measures.
