| Date Posted: 5/10/2022

PINEHURST, N.C. - FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital has been awarded an ‘A’ in The Leapfrog Group’s Spring 2022 hospital safety grades.

 

The national honor positions Moore Regional among the safest hospitals in the United States.

 

“The professionals who care for patients at Moore Regional Hospital strive to make safety a top priority each day, and the ‘A’ grade from Leapfrog is a great recognition of those efforts,” FirstHealth CEO Mickey Foster said. “Patient safety will remain at the forefront of our efforts.”

 

The Leapfrog Group is an independent national watchdog organization driven by employers and other purchasers of health care committed to improving health care quality and safety for consumers and purchasers.

 

The Safety Grade assigns an ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’, ‘D’ or ‘F’ grade to all general hospitals across the country based on their performance in preventing medical errors, injuries, accidents, infections and other harms to patients in their care.

 

Developed under the guidance of a National Expert Panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 28 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,600 U.S. acute-care hospitals twice per year. The Hospital Safety Grade’s methodology is peer-reviewed and fully transparent, and the results are free to the public. Updated every six months, the Safety Grade is based on a hospital’s performance in preventing medical errors, injuries, accidents, infections and other harms in patient care.
