TriStar Southern Hills Medical Center received an “A” grade in the spring 2021 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade, marking eight consecutive grading periods earning the highest grade possible. The national distinction recognizes hospitals who protect patients from errors, injuries, accidents and infections.

“This recognition is a testament to our unwavering commitment to patient safety,” said Joanna Conley, CEO of TriStar Southern Hills Medical Center. “Our highly trained physicians and nurses are dedicated to following proven treatment protocols that ensure we provide our patients the best in safe, high quality care.”

“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 TriStar Southern Hills shows us it is possible to keep a laser focus on patients and their safety, no matter what it takes.”

Developed under the guidance of a national Expert Panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses up to 27 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,700 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.
