Jupiter Medical Center Achieves Highest Safety Rating

Jupiter Medical Center receives an “A” Hospital Safety Grade from nationally respected watchdog organization, The Leapfrog Group. The top rating is awarded only to those hospitals across the country committed to the highest standards of patient safety.

JUPITER, Fla. (May 8, 2023) –The Leapfrog Group has again awarded Jupiter Medical Center an “A” Hospital Safety Grade for achieving the highest national standard in patient safety.
Jupiter Medical Center is the only hospital in the Palm Beach and Martin County region to receive an “A” rating.

The Leapfrog Group assigns a grade between “A” and “F” to more than 2,600 general hospitals across the country. The grade uses over 30 measures of safety data including rates of preventable errors, injuries and infections. It also accounts for whether hospitals have systems in place to protect patients from harm. Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades are considered the “gold standard of patient safety.”

“Patient safety is one of the foundational elements for those deciding where to receive care,” says Amit Rastogi, MD, MHCM, President and CEO of Jupiter Medical Center. “This national designation by The Leapfrog Group assures our community that the health care provided by Jupiter Medical Center meets the highest standards. As we continue to expand access to quality care to our growing community, this recognition signifies our commitment to providing the best quality, safety and patient experience.”

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program based exclusively on hospital prevention of medical errors and harm to patients. The grading system is peer-reviewed and fully transparent to the public.

“This new update of Hospital Safety Grades shows that, at the national level, we saw deterioration in patient safety with the pandemic,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “But Jupiter Medical Center received an ‘A’ despite those challenges. I congratulate all the leaders, staff, volunteers and clinicians who together made that possible.”
