JOHNS CREEK – Emory Johns Creek Hospital has received an ‘A’ rating from the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade Spring 2022 survey. This national distinction is a measure of achievement in patient safety, indicating Emory Johns Creek Hospital’s success in preventing errors and harm throughout the facility.

The Leapfrog Group is an independent national watchdog organization which assigns grades to general hospitals across the country, based on over 30 performance measures reflecting errors, accidents, injuries and infections, as well as systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm. Only 33 percent of hospitals reviewed this spring received an ‘A’ Hospital Safety Grade.

“Patient safety and quality outcomes are top priorities for our staff every day,” says Marilyn Margolis, chief executive officer of Emory Johns Creek Hospital. “This recognition is confirmation that our highly-trained, compassionate and professional caregivers are committed to providing the highest quality care possible for the Johns Creek community.”

“We are delighted that Leapfrog has recognized our hospital for the intense effort we put into quality improvement, safety and patient experience,” says Hasan Shabbir, MD, chief quality officer at Emory Johns Creek Hospital. “The results achieved are a testament to the dedication and caliber of our entire staff.”

Susan Reich, the hospital’s director of quality and patient safety agrees. “Emory Johns Creek Hospital is transforming health care by putting patient safety above all. Receiving an ‘A’ grade demonstrates our commitment to protecting patients from any harm in the hospital.”

Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group, says, “As our health care system continues to feel the strain of the pandemic, I thank the workforce and leadership of Emory Johns Creek Hospital for sustained commitment to patient safety, day in and day out. An ‘A’ Safety Grade is an outstanding achievement, and one that is not possible without a 24/7 effort by the entire health care workforce to protect patients from harm. This community should be proud.”
