Provided by Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center

Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center recently earned an “A” Safety Grade from The Leapfrog Group for their commitment to keeping patients safe and meeting the highest safety standards in the U.S. The Leapfrog Group assigns letter grades of A, B, C, D and F to hospitals nationwide based on their performance in preventing medical errors, infections and other harms.

“Our mission at Sentara Healthcare is to improve the health of our patients and communities every day. The safety of our patients, members and staff is our number one priority,” said Dr. Murali Naidu, vice president and chief clinical officer of Sentara Healthcare. “We are pleased to have several of our facilities recognized for the safe, quality care we provide.”

“It takes consistent, unwavering dedication to patients to achieve the highest standards of patient safety. An ‘A’ Safety Grade recognizes hospitals for this accomplishment,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “We congratulate the clinicians, Board, management and staff of Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center for showing the country what it means to put patient safety first.”

Developed under the guidance of a Blue Ribbon National Expert Panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 27 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,600 U.S. hospitals twice per year.
