Posted on:

Hoag Hospital facilities in Newport Beach and Irvine recently got an “A” rating for safety from the Leapfrog Group, a Washington, D.C.-based organization that promotes health-care safety, quality and affordability.

The selection was based on the results of Leapfrog's annual measure of hospitals' performance on patient safety and quality, according to a news release.

“Hoag is honored to be recognized as one of the top hospitals in the nation for patient safety and quality,” Robert Braithwaite, Hoag's president and chief executive, said in a statement. “We pride ourselves on providing the highest-quality health-care services to the communities we serve, and it is a privilege to be acknowledged for that nationally by Leapfrog.”

Hoag also received distinction for the second year in a row from Becker's Hospital Review as one of the “100 Hospitals and Health Systems with Great Neurosurgery and Spine Programs,” according to a news release.
