HealthPark Medical Center Straight “A” Streak Continues

Press Releases

FORT MYERS, Fla. (Nov. 10, 2021) --- Today, The Leapfrog Group released its Fall 2021 Hospital Safety Grades, awarding HealthPark Medical Center with an “A” grade and awarding Cape Coral Hospital, Gulf Coast Medical Center and Lee Memorial Hospital each with a “B” grade. This marks the eighth straight reporting period that all Lee Health Hospitals received a grade of “B” or higher. 

“I am proud of the incredible work our team does to keep their patients, who place their trust in us, safe,” said Dr. Stephanie Stovall, chief quality and safety officer for Lee Health. “Surveys like The Leapfrog Group’s hospital safety grades challenge us to improve what we do through their rigorous standards and benchmarks. We implement processes to improve our best practices based on each year’s results, and I am thankful for the opportunity these grades provide to learn and create an even better experience for our patients.”

The Safety Grade assigns letter grades of “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” and “F” to hospitals across the country based on their performance in preventing medical errors, infections, and other harms. Every Lee Health hospital earned a raw score over 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, and was within 6 percent of the 3.202 threshold of earning an “A” grade. These are the highest standards that Leapfrog has ever applied, benefiting patients by propelling hospitals to new heights in safety practices.

Developed under the guidance of a national expert panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 22 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,700 U.S. acute-care hospitals twice per year. The Leapfrog Group’s grading system is peer-reviewed, fully transparent, and free to the public.

Children’s hospitals are not included in The Leapfrog Group’s Spring grades, but Golisano Children’s Hospital has been named as a Top Children’s Hospital by The Leapfrog Group four times.
