Twin Cities Community Hospital, a 122-bed acute care hospital delivering medical care for the communities in the north San Luis Obispo County region, was honored with its third consecutive “A” Hospital Safety ScoreSM, based on an A F scale on preventable medical errors, injuries accidents, and infections.

Awarded by The Leapfrog Group, an independent national nonprofit advocacy group for hospital transparency founded by employers and other large purchasers of health benefits, the Hospital Safety Score was launched for the first time in June 2012, and provides biannual updates in April and October of each year. The recent April 2013 release of scores marks the program’s third report to-date, and Twin Cities Community Hospital’s third “A.”

Twin Cities Community Hospital is one of just 86 hospitals (or 35% of hospitals) in the state of California to receive an “A” in the Hospital Safety Score, and was one of 2,600 hospitals throughout the nation to participate in the Leapfrog Hospital Survey.

Twin Cities Community Hospital CEO Mark Lisa said,“Receiving the third ‘A’ score in a row really emphasizes the hard work, dedication, and high standard for health and safety that the Twin Cities staff offers the North County community. We are proud to continue to raise the bar for award-winning medical services in the state and country.”
“Hospitals like Twin Cities that earn an ‘A’ have demonstrated their commitment to their patients and their community by exhibiting excellence in our national database of patient safety measures,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “I congratulate Twin Cities Community Hospital for continuing to put a priority on the safety of its patients.”
