The Leapfrog Group has awarded Baptist Golden Triangle an “A” Safety Grade every biannual grading cycle since 2012. Spring 2022 marks the hospital’s 10th consecutive year to receive an “A” grade!

Baptist Golden Triangle is one of only 23 hospitals in the U.S. to achieve straight “A” grades in every grading cycle in the last 10 years. See Leapfrog’s Spring 2022 Straight “A” Hospitals Since 2012 to learn more.

“I am proud of the patient safety culture and the emphasis that our employees and physicians place on safety when taking care of our patients at Baptist Golden Triangle. This award is a credit to them that we are one the safest hospitals in the nation,” said Baptist Golden Triangle Administrator and CEO Paul Cade.

“To be recognized for the culture of safety practiced at our hospital is rewarding. To earn that distinction for 10 consecutive years, especially through more than two years of a pandemic, tells you everything you need to know about the dedication and the quality of our employees and our medical staff,” Cade added.

Several Baptist Hospitals Earned “A” Safety Grade

Seven Baptist hospitals earned an “A” Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for spring 2022: Baptist Carroll County, Baptist Golden Triangle, Baptist North Mississippi, Baptist Union City, Mississippi Baptist Medical Center, Baptist Union County and NEA Baptist. Congratulations to team members for being recognized for all you do to protect patients from harm.

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only ratings program for hospitals that’s based exclusively on hospital prevention of medical errors and harms to patients. Grades are updated in the fall and spring.

The Leapfrog Group is an independent national watchdog organization that assigns grades to general hospitals based on more than 30 performance measures reflecting errors, injuries, accidents and infections, as well as systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm.
