Sarasota, FL — Along the west coast of Florida there are many options for healthcare. When choosing a hospital you want one recognized for patient safety and quality outcomes. Today, the Leapfrog Group, a national nonprofit that grades hospitals released its latest report card. Doctors Hospital of Sarasota once again earned an "A" grade. This is the tenth consecutive time the hospital has earned the "A" rating.
"Earning an "A" rating ten times in a row is an accomplishment few hospitals have. This shows our entire team is committed to providing safe and compassionate care to every patient, every day. I thank them for their dedication to our community," said Doctors Hospital of Sarasota CEO, Robert Meade.
According to The Leapfrog Group, the grading system assigns letter grades to hospitals based on performance in preventing medical errors, injuries, accidents, and infections. The group uses 28 measures of hospital safety data to assign letter grades.
