Both Washington Health System Hospitals Nationally Recognized with an A Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade Washington Health System is proud to announce that both of their hospitals, WHS Washington Hospital and WHS Greene, received an 'A' Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for fall of 2021. This national distinction recognizes WHS Washington Hospital and WHS Greene's achievements in protecting patients from harm and error in the hospital. "Leapfrog's recognition is one of the health care industry's most prestigious honors. Unlike some of the other health care awards out there, Leapfrog is based entirely on an inde- pendent, scientific review of objective data. The data proves we ( both of our hospitals ) are a top performer," Stephanie Wagoner, WHS's manager of marketing and community rela- tions, said. "We feel that awards like this prove that we have a strong, independent health system here in the county, ready to serve this community. Even through COVID, our focus has never changed or waivered. We are still focused on making sure our patients get the best care possible."
