PROVIDED
Hallmark Health

Melrose-Wakefield Hospital and Lawrence Memorial Hospital of Medford were among 844 hospitals to receive an “A”, ranking among the safest hospitals in the United States by The Leapfrog Group, a national patient safety watchdog. New Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades use 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.

“Protecting patients from harm is the most important charge for any hospital,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “We recognize and appreciate ‘A’ hospitals’ vigilance and continued dedication to keeping their patients safe.”

To see Melrose-Wakefield Hospital and Lawrence Memorial Hospital of Medford’s full grades, and to access consumer-friendly patient tips for staying safe in the hospital, visit www.hospitalsafetygrade.org or follow The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade on Twitter or Facebook. Consumers can also download the free Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade mobile app for Apple and Android devices.
