WHITE PLAINS HOSPITAL RECEIVES HIGHEST PATIENT SAFETY GRADE FOR 5TH TIME IN A ROW—Remains the Only Hospital in Westchester to Earn an “A” Rating from The Leapfrog Group

White Plains Hospital has once again earned an “A” from healthcare watchdog The Leapfrog Group in its Spring 2021 Hospital Safety Grades. This marks the 5th consecutive time White Plains Hospital has received this designation for its achievements in protecting patients from errors, injuries, accidents, and infections. White Plains Hospital remains the only healthcare facility in Westchester County to receive the highest possible rating.

“An ‘A’ safety grade is an elite designation that your community should be proud of,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “The past year has been extraordinarily difficult for hospitals, but White Plains Hospital shows us it is possible to keep a laser focus on patients and their safety, no matter what it takes.”

“Patient safety is always our top priority and it is gratifying when the hard work and efforts or our staff are recognized on a national level,” said Dr. Rafael E. Torres, Chief Quality Officer at White Plains Hospital. “It is an honor to be consistently recognized by the Leapfrog Group as a top hospital in the region and is a testament to our commitment to providing the highest quality of care to our community.”

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital rating focused exclusively on hospital safety. Developed under the guidance of a national expert panel, the Leapfrog Safety Grade uses as many as 27 measures of hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,700 U.S. acute-care hospitals twice a year. White Plains Hospital is one of 906 hospitals in the U.S., and one of only 16 hospitals in New York, to earn an “A” rating. – White Plains Hospital
