Illinois Ranks 30th in Hospital Safety

On Behalf of | May 2, 2024 | Firm News |

According to an article in the Chicago Tribune by Lisa Schencker, the State of Illinois has dropped two spots since last Fall concerning ranking of hospital safety. This finding was released by the nonprofit Leapfrog Group, one of the organizations that grade or rank hospitals annually. The Leapfrog Group graded 22% of Illinois hospitals as earning an “A” grade for safety compared to nearly 25% in the fall. Top ranks for Illinois hospitals include University of Chicago Medical Center and Rush University Medical Center. Five Endeavor Health hospitals located in Evanston, Highland Park, Glenview, Elmhurst, and Arlington Heights also earned A’s as did Northwestern Medicine hospitals in Huntley, DeKalb, Winfield, Geneva, Lake Forest, and McHenry.

Four of the 15 Illinois hospitals earning “D” grades this spring are part of the Advocate Healthcare system. Those hospitals include Advocate Good Samaritan in Downers Grove, Advocate South Suburban in Hazel Crest, Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oaklawn, and Advocate Trinity in Chicago. Five other Advocate hospitals earned “C”s.
