AdventHealth Hendersonville has earned an “A” Hospital Safety Grade from The Leapfrog Group, a national nonprofit watchdog.

Leapfrog assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D” or “F” grade to general hospitals across the country based on more than 30 measures of errors, accidents, injuries and infections as well as the systems hospitals have in place to prevent them.

The 2024 Spring Safety Grade is AdventHealth Hendersonville’s 16th consecutive “A” Hospital Safety Grade. It also represents another increase in the hospital’s numerical score. This increase reflects the AdventHealth team’s commitment to continuous review of care practices to ensure and enhance safety and quality for every patient, every time.

“We are honored to receive an ‘A’ Hospital Safety Grade from The Leapfrog Group. This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team,” said Brandon Nudd, President and Chief Executive Officer for AdventHealth Hendersonville. “Our top priority is always the safety and well-being of our patients, and we are committed to providing the highest quality care to our community.”

“Everyone who works at AdventHealth Hendersonville should be proud of this ‘A’ Hospital Safety Grade,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “It takes complete dedication at every level, and an ironclad commitment to putting patients first. I thank AdventHealth Hendersonville, its leadership, clinicians, staff, and volunteers for caring so deeply for its patients and their safety.”

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program focused exclusively on preventable medical errors, infections and injuries that kill more than 500 patients a day nationally. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. Grades are updated twice annually, in the fall and spring. 2 To see AdventHealth Hendersonville’s full grade details and to access patient tips for staying safe in the hospital, visit HospitalSafetyGrade.org and follow The Leapfrog Group on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram and via The Leapfrog Group newsletter.
