Patient Safety Excellence

Alvarado Hospital Medical Center has been recognized by two national quality rating organizations for excellence in patient safety. The Leapfrog Group’s Spring 2021 awards handed Alvarado Hospital an ‘A’ Hospital Safety Grade. The hospital is also a recipient of the Healthgrades 2021 Patient Safety Excellence Award™. Leapfrog’s ‘A’ rating is in recognition of Alvarado Hospital’s superior efforts and results in providing safe care for its patients. Similarly, the Healthgrades award places Alvarado among the top 5% of all short-term acute care hospitals reporting patient safety data as evaluated by Healthgrades. This marks the seventh consecutive year that Healthgrades has awarded Alvarado Hospital this distinction (2015-2021).

AHA Get with the Guidelines Awards_2020“Patient safety is our mantra,” explains Robin Gomez, CEO of Alvarado Hospital. “There are some things that we cannot control in our industry, so we concentrate on things we can, like the quality of care we deliver, and the well-being of the patients we take care of. I’m gratified to see, once again, that our efforts are being lauded by such distinguished organizations such as The Leapfrog Group and Healthgrades. I’m so proud of our hospital!”
