Bon Secours Memorial Regional Medical Center, Bon Secours St. Francis Medical Center and Bon Secours St. Mary’s Hospital were among 798 hospitals to receive an A, ranking them among the safest hospitals in the country. Developed under the guidance of Leapfrog’s Blue Ribbon Expert Panel, the Hospital Safety Score uses 30 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign A-F grades to more than 2,500 U.S. hospitals twice per year. It is calculated by top patient safety experts, peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public.
