DENVER, CO, - The Leapfrog Group, a Washington D.C-based organization aiming to improve health care quality and safety for consumers and purchasers, today released new Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades, which assign A, B, C, D and F letter grades to hospitals nationwide. Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center received their 10th consecutive 'A' rating, a result of a collective commitment to the care and improvement of human life. Because of an unwavering attention to detail, the hospital keeps patients safe, reduces infection rates and achieves high quality outcomes.

Our A grades are a powerful reminder of our commitment to putting patient safety above all else," said Sylvia Young, President and CEO of HealthONE. "The collaboration of our teams - physicians, nurses, colleagues, leaders - is a result of our deep desire to provide exceptional care to every community we serve."
"Our goal is to inform patients about local hospitals with the best safety measures in place and the strongest records," said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. "Every hospital can earn an 'A' grade, and we're proud of the hospitals that are committed to making an effort to protect patients from harm."
