November 7, 2019 – Jupiter Medical Center is once again recognized as a leader in hospital safety, according to national healthcare watchdog organization The Leapfrog Group.
 
The medical center received the highest ranking possible of an “A” rating for the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade in fall 2019. The ranking is a national distinction recognizing Jupiter Medical Center’s achievements protecting patients from harm and providing safer healthcare.
 
“Prioritizing patient safety while providing high-quality healthcare to patients at all stages of their medical journey is of utmost importance to us,” said Dr. Amit Rastogi, president and chief executive officer of Jupiter Medical Center. “Consistently earning an ‘A’ hospital safety grade is a testament to the work done by our team of physicians, nurses, medical staff and quality teams to meet and exceed rigorous safety benchmarks.”
 
The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 28 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,600 U.S. hospitals twice per year. The Hospital Safety Grade’s methodology is peer-reviewed and fully transparent, and the results are free to the public.
