Doylestown Hospital earned a 13th consecutive ‘A’ grade for patient safety from Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade, a national distinction recognizing Doylestown Hospital’s achievements protecting patients from errors, injuries, accidents, and infections. Doylestown Hospital has received an ‘A’ in every Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade cycle since 2016. With this latest ranking, Doylestown Hospital is the only hospital in Pennsylvania and one of only 102 hospitals nationwide to achieve thirteen consecutive ‘A’ grades—placing it in the top three percent of all hospitals.

“This achievement reflects our entire organization’s ongoing commitment to patient-safety,” says Scott Levy, MD, Vice President and Chief Medical Officer. “Our model of care is truly patient-centered while demonstrating the highest standards of excellence in safety and outcomes.” Founded in 1923, “Doylestown Hospital is approaching a milestone century of care,” says Levy. “We are proud to continue offering world-class care in a community setting and value this endorsement by the Leapfrog Group.”

The Leapfrog Group is an independent national watchdog organization with a 10-year history of assigning letter grades to general hospitals throughout the United States, based on a hospital’s ability to prevent medical errors and harm to patients. The grading system is peer-reviewed, fully transparent, and free to the public. Hospital Safety Grade results are based on more than 30 national performance measures and are updated each fall and spring.

“A hospital receiving this number of consistent ‘A’ grades is a rare and remarkable achievement,” said Leah Binder, president, and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “This persistence demonstrates a hospital’s dedication to continuously prioritize patient safety, while adapting to an evolving healthcare landscape and facing the challenges of a global pandemic. Doylestown Hospital and community should be momentously proud.”
