Holy Family Hospital Again Earns “A” Hospital Safety Score

Holy Family Hospital has again earned an “A” Hospital Safety Score from the Leapfrog Group.
This prestigious “A” Hospital Safety Score applies to both of Holy Family Hospital’s full service campuses in Methuen and Haverhill. Both campuses provide comprehensive inpatient and outpatient care, surgical care, intensive care, and 24/7 emergency services to the Merrimack Valley and southern New Hampshire.
“At Holy Family Hospital we continually strive to improve care across our two full-service hospital campuses,” says Holy Family Hospital President Joseph Roach. “The highly qualified physicians and health care professionals we have on staff have superior training, are dedicated to patients, and they pay close attention to detail, all of which play a role in keeping patients safe.  This award is tangible proof that the highest standard of care is being delivered to our patients each and every day.” 
The Hospital Safety Score is compiled under the guidance of the nation’s leading experts on patient safety, and is administered by The Leapfrog Group, an independent industry watchdog. 
Calculated under the guidance of Leapfrog’s Blue Ribbon Expert Panel, the Hospital Safety Score uses 28 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to produce a single “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” score, representing a hospital’s overall capacity to keep patients safe from preventable harm
The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Score uses national performance measures from the Leapfrog Hospital Survey, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the American Hospital Association’s Annual Survey and Health Information Technology Supplement.
