UnityPoint Health® Hospitals Earn “A” Grade for Patient Safety

New Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades, which assign A, B, C, D, and F letter grades to hospitals nationwide, were announced by The Leapfrog Group, a national patient safety watchdog.

UnityPoint Health® affiliates Allen Hospital in Waterloo, Finley Hospital in Dubuque, and St. Luke’s Hospital in Cedar Rapids were listed among the nine Iowa hospitals granted an “A” ranking among the safest hospitals in the United States.

Developed under the guidance of an Expert Panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 30 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign A, B, C, D and F grades to more than 2,600 U.S. hospitals twice per year. It is calculated by top patient safety experts, peer-reviewed, fully transparent, and free to the public.
