For the sixth consecutive reporting period, Presence Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center (PSMEMC), 2233 W. Division St., has received an "A" Hospital Safety Score from Leapfrog Group for providing the highest quality care to their patients. 

These scores are provided for more than 2,500 United States general hospitals across the country twice a year. Used in the process are national performance measures from the Leapfrog Hospital Survey, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and the American Hospital Association’s Annual Survey and Health Information Technology Supplement. 

Taking 28 performance measures, a single score is given, representing a hospital’s overall performance in keeping patients safe from preventable harm and medical errors.
