Local hospitals earn top grades

LEWISBURG–  Two local hospitals earned a grade of “A” by a national group who advocates for increased safety.  Evangelical Hospital in Lewisburg and Geisinger Medical Center in Danville both earned the top scores by the Leapfrog Group, a national non-profit, who looked at hospital’s efforts to reduce errors, infections, and accidents.

It’s Evan’s third consecutive “A” rating; Geisinger has earned the top grade since the fall of 2015.  In the latest survey, the Leapfrog Group rated 26-hundred hospitals with 823 earning an “A.”  (Chad Hershberger)
