St. Luke's Hospital and St. Luke's Des Peres Hospital Earn Top Safety Grade from Leapfrog

Chesterfield, Mo. , November 7, 2019
St. Luke’s Hospital and St. Luke’s Des Peres Hospital both achieved an ‘A’ in The Leapfrog Group’s fall 2019 Hospital Safety Grade. The designation recognizes the hospitals’ efforts to protect patients from harm and provide safe care.

“Our commitment to providing high quality care starts with patient safety,” said Christine M. Candio, FACHE, St. Luke’s president and chief executive officer. “This recognition is a nod to our healthcare teams’ dedication to improving the quality of life for our patients and the community.”

The Leapfrog Group is a national nonprofit organization that works to improve healthcare quality and safety for consumers and purchasers. The Safety Grade assigns an ‘A,’ ‘B,’ ‘C,’ ‘D’ or ‘F’ grade to hospitals across the country based on their performance in preventing medical errors, injuries, infections and other harm to patients in their care. 

The peer-reviewed Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 28 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,600 U.S. acute-care hospitals twice per year.
