Central Peninsula Hospital isn’t shy about its achievements, and The Leapfrog Group has given them another reason to celebrate, awarding CPH an ‘A’ rating. The nonprofit aims to help patients make better choices about their healthcare, by rating the safety of individual hospitals. Scores are based on the number of preventable medical errors, injuries accidents, and infections.
CPH’s CEO Rick Davis explains…
Davis: “Leapfrog is a well known national non-profit organization, devoted to improving hospital quality and safety, and this safety score concept was created with advice from a Blue Ribbon expert panel of patient safety experts from Harvard, Johns Hopkins and Stanford. As you can see, there’s five hospitals in Alaska that participate. Central Peninsula received a rating of A, which is the top rating. Only hospital in Alaska to get an A.”
