Greenwich Hospital earns ‘A’ for safety from national watchdog group

Thursday, November 9, 2023

Greenwich, CT (Nov. 9, 2023) – Greenwich Hospital received an ‘A’ grade as one of the safest hospitals in the United States, according to The Leapfrog Group, an independent national patient safety watchdog group.

“Earning an ‘A’ grade means Greenwich Hospital made a true commitment to put patients first,” said Leah Binder, president and chief executive officer of The Leapfrog Group. “We congratulate leadership, board members, clinicians, staff and volunteers who had a role to play in this achievement.”

Greenwich Hospital takes pride in its culture of safety through daily safety huddles with senior staff, hospital-wide quality rounds by leaders and unit-based safety coaches. All staff, physicians and volunteers complete high reliability training adapted from the aviation and other high-risk industries. The hospital has a video fall monitoring program for at-risk patients.

The Leapfrog Group uses an academic grading scale with five letter grades to score hospitals nationwide on more than 30 measures of patient safety, including errors, accidents, injuries and infections. Leapfrog says its hospital rating system is the only one in the nation focusing solely on an organization’s ability to protect patients from previous errors.

Greenwich Hospital is a member of Yale New Haven Health. Greenwich is a 206-bed (includes 32 isolettes) community hospital serving lower Fairfield County, Connecticut and Westchester County, New York. It is a academic affiliate of Yale School of Medicine.
