Hancock Regional Hospital Earns Seventh Straight ʻAʼ Hospital Safety Grade

November 16, 2023

GREENFIELD, Ind. — Hancock Regional Hospital earned a fall 2023 “A” Hospital Safety Grade from The Leapfrog Group, a national nonprofit watchdog that sets standards for excellence in patient care. Between the spring and fall ratings Leapfrog issues annually, this is the seventh time in a row Hancock Regional Hospital has earned an “A” designation. 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.

“Weʼre proud to be among the 18 Indiana hospitals that earned an “A” rating this fall. Our entire team works diligently every day to make sure our facilities are safe and clean for our patients,” said Steve Long, president and CEO of Hancock Health. “Not only are our healthcare experts knowledgeable of the latest care and treatments, they also make sure to carry out best practices related to quality and safety techniques.”

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.

“Earning an ʻAʼ Grade means Hancock Regional Hospital 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.”
