DUHS Hospitals Receive Top A Safety Grades

The Leapfrog Group has awarded top “A” grades to all three Duke University Health System hospitals for the Fall 2020 report card. Duke University Hospital, Duke Regional Hospital and Duke Raleigh Hospital have all demonstrated a consistent commitment to providing our patients exceptional care.

Our highest priority is the health and safety of our patients and team members. We are proud of our steadfast commitment to quality. The Fall recognition of a Leapfrog grade “A” marks consecutive honors for Duke Raleigh Hospital (17), Duke Regional Hospital (6) and Duke University Hospital (5).

Duke Raleigh Hospital has maintained an “A” safety grade since the Fall of 2012, making it one of 41 nationwide and one of two in North Carolina to hold this record, according to Leapfrog.

“I am proud to see our hospital maintain this longstanding record of safety since 2012,” said Leigh Bleecker, interim president of Duke Raleigh Hospital. “This has been an extraordinary year for all of us, but through it all our team has remained focused on excellence in every aspect of care delivery.”
