This national distinction recognizes Capital Health’s achievements in protecting patients from preventable harm and error in the hospital.
“Capital Health Medical Center – Hopewell is home to many innovative services, such as our Cancer Center, the Josephine Plumeri Birthing Center and Regional Perinatal Center, and minimally invasive robotic-assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Surgical System,” said Al Maghazehe, president and CEO, Capital Health. “By earning an ‘A’ from the Leapfrog group, residents in our community can be assured of our continuing status as a health care leader in the region.”
“Capital Health is committed to improving quality and safety outcomes throughout our organization,” said Dr. Mark Arcaro, acting vice president of Clinical Performance at Capital Health. “And while this recognition validates our efforts, we are always looking ahead to make sustained improvements and continue to meet and exceed national standards of care.”
The Leapfrog Group, an independent national watchdog organization, assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” grade to general hospitals across the country based on over thirty national performance measures reflecting errors, accidents, injuries and infections, as well as systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm.
Grades are updated twice annually, in the fall and spring. Capital Health is the Central New Jersey/Lower Bucks County region’s leader in providing progressive, quality patient care with significant investments in physicians, nurses and staff, as well as advanced technology.
