GAMC Earns an ‘A’ Grade for Patient Safety

The independent hospital watchdog The Leapfrog Group published its latest results for hospital safety scores in October. Glendale Adventist Medical Center earned an A in this elite national ratings program, recognizing its strong commitment to patient safety.

The Hospital Safety Score is the gold standard rating for patient safety, compiled under the guidance of the nation’s leading patient safety experts and administered by The Leapfrog Group, a national, independent nonprofit. The first and only hospital safety rating to be peer-reviewed in the Journal of Patient Safety, the Hospital Safety Score is free to the public and designed to give consumers information they can use to protect themselves and their families when facing a hospital stay.

Roberts, president/CEO of Glendale Adventist Medical Center. “Our entire staff including our physicians, nurses, associates and administration have worked hard to keep patient care, safety and outcomes as the focus of our mission.”
