Holy Redeemer Hospital Earns 10th Straight A-Grade in Hospital Safety: Spring 2024 Grade Reveals Ongoing Top Performance


Meadowbrook, PA, May 1, 2024 - Holy Redeemer Hospital earned an “A” Hospital Safety Grade from The Leapfrog Group for the tenth consecutive scoring season. The hospital was notified that it is one of only 11 hospitals in Pennsylvania, and 167 hospitals out of 3,000 nationally, to score an “A” 10 times in a row, dating back to fall 2019.

“Earning an A-grade in safety is always a hospital’s goal,” said Cass Egan, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer at Holy Redeemer Hospital. “But achieving an A-grade in safety 10 times in a row is a testament to the team’s ongoing expectation to deliver safe care. Maintaining high scores in error prevention and medication administration over a long period of time reflects the culture of safety that we insist on here.”

The Leapfrog Group is a national nonprofit organization that assigns safety grades to hospitals across the country based on more than 30 measures of errors, accidents, injuries and infections as well as the systems hospitals have in place to prevent them. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. Grades are updated twice annually. 

“Our continued success in patient safety is celebrated at Holy Redeemer Hospital,” said Patient Safety Officer Krzysztof Stypulkowski, DNP, MBA, RN. “This level of high performance is evidence of the focus and responsiveness we see from everyone, every day.”
According to Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group, “It takes complete dedication at every level, and an ironclad commitment to putting patients first.
