The Leapfrog Group Gives Lutheran Another “A”
Wheat Ridge, CO - Since the fall of 2014, SCL Health Lutheran Medical Center has consistently received an “A” grade from The Leapfrong Group. We continue to be awarded with the top grade for our efforts in protecting patients from harm and meeting the highest safety standards. That makes 12 times consecutively in the past 5 ½ years! We are one of only 16 Colorado hospitals and one of 867 hospitals in the country to be recognized at this level.
The outstanding efforts made daily by Lutheran associates and physicians to improve patient safety and quality are continually being recognized with top scores and awards from similar organizations, including Healthgrades®, which named us one of America’s 50 Best Hospitals™ for the past three years.
Especially during this time of unprecedented challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, each recognition is still something to celebrate and is a reflection of Lutheran’s commitment to the highest quality under all circumstances.
SCL Health is a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization dedicated to improving the health of the people and communities we serve. Founded by the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth in 1864, our health network provides comprehensive, coordinated care through eight hospitals, more than 180 physician clinics, home health, hospice, mental health, and safety-net services in Colorado and the Montana Wyoming region.
