Cape Fear Valley Earns Top Patient Safety Grades

FAYETTEVILLE – Cape Fear Valley Medical Center has been awarded an “A” for hospital safety by The Leapfrog Group. The grade was announced in a biannual survey of more than 2,300 hospitals nationwide by the Washington D.C.-based patient safety organization. The group’s rating system is considered the gold standard for patient safety. It is the first and only hospital rating system to be peer-reviewed by the Journal of Patient Safety. The Leapfrog survey analyzes 28 measures of publicly available safety data to produce a single A, B, C, D or F score for each facility. The grade represents a hospital’s overall capacity to keep patients safe from preventable harm. The ratings are important because they allow patients to determine which local hospital has the best patient safety track record and which consistently demonstrates improvement.

 The Leapfrog Group A rating is one of many outside validations of Cape Fear Valley’s quality. Among them are:

  • IBM Watson – Truven Healthcare Top 50 Cardiovascular Hospital
  • Disease Specific Certification from The Joint Commission for:
    • Hip and Knee Replacement Surgery
