Release Date: 01/15/2015

We know safety is a top priority to you and your family when it comes to hospital care. Inland Hospital is proud to have received an “A” grade in the Hospital Safety Score program by The Leapfrog Group, a national group of healthcare purchasers. Watch this cool video to learn more about the Hospital Safety Score program.

Inland has earned an “A” ranking from Leapfrog for the past two years, and has also earned Leapfrog’s Top Rural Hospital award three times in four years. Inland is a member of EMHS and its sister hospitals within EMHS also earned top safety grades, including EMMC in Bangor, Mercy Hospital in Portland, and TAMC in Presque Isle.

The Hospital Safety Score is released twice a year and is compiled under the guidance of the nation’s leading experts on patient safety. The first and only hospital safety rating to be peer-reviewed in the Journal of Patient Safety, the Score is free to the public and designed to give consumers information they can use to protect themselves and their families when facing a hospital stay.
