The Leapfrog Group has awarded Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian straight “A’s” on the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for its hospitals in Newport Beach and Irvine. Achieving the nation’s top honor for patient safety, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade rates how well hospitals protect patients from accidents, errors, injuries and infections.

“It’s an honor for Hoag to be recognized as one of the top hospitals in the nation for patient safety and quality,” said Robert T. Braithwaite, Hoag president and chief executive officer. “We pride ourselves on providing the highest quality health care to the communities we serve and it is a privilege to be acknowledged for that nationally by Leapfrog.”

Leapfrog collects and transparently reports hospital performance, empowering purchasers to find the highest-value care and giving consumers the lifesaving information they need to make informed decisions. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades are assigned to more than 2,600 U.S. hospitals.
