Kaiser Permanente Irvine and Anaheim Medical Centers Receive ‘A’ Grade for Patient Safety

Kaiser Permanente Irvine and Anaheim medical centers received an “A” Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for spring 2024 for their achievements in protecting patients from preventable harm and errors while receiving hospital care.

The Leapfrog Group, an independent national watchdog organization, assigns an A, B, C, D or F grade to general hospitals across the country. The grades are based on more than 30 national performance measures reflecting errors, accidents, injuries and infections, as well as hospital harm prevention systems.

Kaiser Permanente’s Irvine Medical Center received an ‘A’ safety grade from Leapfrog for 24 consecutive times, and Anaheim Medical Center has received it for the 25th consecutive time.

“We’re proud to be among the nation’s leaders for providing the safest care,” said Payman Roshan, senior vice president and area manager for Kaiser Permanente Orange County. “Having both our medical centers receive straight A’s since 2012 is a testament to our staff and their commitment and how, together, we can provide top-quality care and ensure the safest environment possible for our patients.”

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.

“The health and safety of our employees, patients, and members is, and always will be, our top priority,” said Dr. Todd Newton, area medical director for Kaiser Permanente Orange County. “We are extremely proud of this recognition, as it further exemplifies the continuous commitment of our physicians and care teams to prioritize patient safety and medical excellence.”
