Chelsea Hospital Recognized with an ‘A’ Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade

CHELSEA, Mich. (May 10, 2022) – Recognized nationally for its patient safety and quality, Chelsea Hospital received an “A” grade on its 2022 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade spring scorecard.  Announced today, this national distinction recognizes achievement in protecting patients from preventable harm and error within the hospital setting. Chelsea Hospital has received an A grade every year since 2015.

"Our medical teams are committed to providing high-quality, compassionate care in the safest healing environment possible,” said Ben Miles, president of Chelsea Hospital. “Safety is not only a core value of Chelsea Hospital, it is a guiding principle in how we deliver care.  I couldn’t be prouder of our team and commend each and every colleague for having earned this recognition.”


The Leapfrog Group, an independent national watchdog organization, assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” grade to general hospitals across the country based on over thirty national performance measures reflecting errors, accidents, injuries and infections, as well as systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm.


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, fully transparent and free to the public. Grades are updated twice annually, in the fall and spring.


Two other Trinity Health Michigan hospitals also received “A” Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades for spring 2022. They include Trinity Health St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor and Trinity Health Saint Mary’s, Grand Rapids.  Chelsea Hospital’s joint venture partner, University of Michigan Health, also received an “A” grade.
