Wayne UNC Health Care Improves Patient Quality and Safety – Leapfrog Group Upgrades Quality Grade to A
The Leapfrog Group, a national nonprofit organization that collects and transparently reports hospital performance, has assigned a grade of A to Wayne UNC Health Care for our performance on dozens of patient safety metrics.
This grade is an important milestone for our team, which set a goal last year of earning and sustaining an A grade. “This achievement is a testament to our team’s continued focus on keeping our patients safe,” said Betty Wood, Director of Performance Improvement and Accreditation. “This grade places us in the top 32% of 2,600 hospitals nationwide, working hard to develop and maintain a positive culture around quality and safety.”
