Leapfrog Safety Grades Released for OSF Hospitals


New Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades have been announced by The Leapfrog Group, a national watchdog organization for patient safety. Hospitals are assigned A, B, C, D and F letter grades in order to provide a complete picture of patient safety.


This spring, six OSF HealthCare facilities have achieved an ‘A’ grade:

  • OSF Saint Francis Medical Center, Peoria
  • OSF Heart of Mary Medical Center, Urbana
  • OSF Little Company of Mary Medical Center, Evergreen Park
  • OSF Saint Elizabeth Medical Center, Ottawa
  • OSF St. Mary Medical Center, Galesburg
  • OSF Saint Anthony’s Health Center, Alton

Additionally, two OSF HealthCare facilities have achieved a ‘B’ grade:

  • OSF St. Joseph Medical Center in Bloomington
  • OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center in Rockford


Despite the unprecedented challenges that surround us, our Mission Partners have demonstrated a continued commitment to patient safety,” said Bob Sehring, CEO OSF HealthCare. “We are extremely proud of our Mission Partners today and always.”

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.

The study only includes hospitals of a certain size and treating a minimum number of specific conditions; therefore, some OSF HealthCare facilities were excluded from the ratings.
