Blanchard Valley Hospital Achieves Elite National Recognition

Blanchard Valley Hospital Achieves Elite National Recognition

 Blanchard Valley Hospital (BVH), a division of Blanchard Valley Health System (BVHS), achieved straight ‘A’s’ for the ninth consecutive time since October 2014 in The Leapfrog Group’s Fall 2018 Hospital Safety Grade. Leapfrog assigns an A, B, C, D or F grade to hospitals across the country based on how safe they are for patients.

BVH is a licensed, 150-bed acute care facility that features a full range of services, including inpatient medical/surgical care, 24-hour emergency care, outpatient surgery, robotic surgery, total joint replacement and diagnostic services.

“Associates across Blanchard Valley Health System work tirelessly to keep our patients safe through preventative measures,” said Roxanne Williams, director of corporate quality and patient safety at BVHS. “We are honored to once again receive this elite recognition and will continue to provide quality, safe care to our patients.”

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 the 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.

“BVH’s continued success in achieving an “A” rating is evidence that the organization places an emphasis on protecting patients from preventable medical errors, injuries and infections. We are inspired by BVH’s leadership on patient safety,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group.
