East Georgia Regional Medical Center Lands ‘A’ on Hospital Safety Score Card

East Georgia Regional Medical Center (EGRMC) received an “A” Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for spring 2022. This national distinction recognizes East Georgia Regional Medical Center’s achievements in protecting patients from harm and error in the hospital.

“This distinction reinforces our commitment to providing safe, quality, compassionate care,” said East Georgia Regional Medical Center CEO Stephen Pennington. “Our entire team consistently seeks ways to improve in service to our patients and the ‘A’ grade from The Leapfrog Group comes from that focus.”

The Leapfrog Group, an independent national watchdog organization, assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” grade to general hospitals across the country based on over thirty national performance measures reflecting errors, injuries, accidents and infections, as well as systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm.

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program based exclusively on hospital prevention of medical errors and harms to patients. The grading system is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. Grades are updated twice annually, in the fall and spring.


“An ‘A’ Safety Grade is a tremendous achievement, of which this community should be extremely proud,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “I thank the leadership and workforce of East Georgia Regional Medical Center for its commitment to prioritizing patients and their safety, especially during these trying times.”

EGRMC received an A grade last fall as well.
