Four EMHS hospitals have been named as top rural hospitals by the Leapfrog Group. Blue Hill Memorial Hospital in Blue Hill, Charles A. Dean Memorial Hospital in Greenville, Inland Hospital in Waterville, and Sebasticook Valley Health in Pittsfield are among nine critical access hospitals in Maine and 25 nationwide honored with the ‘Top Hospital’ distinction.
Three EMHS hospitals have received another “A” in patient safety measures from the Hospital Safety ScoreSM by The Leapfrog Group, a non-profit organization that awards top ranks to hospitals that perform well in quality measures. For the sixth consecutive update since the program began in 2012, Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, Inland Hospital in Waterville, and Mercy Hospital in Portland earned a top score from the national organization. The three hospitals are among only nine in Maine and only 204 in the nation to earn an “A” since 2012.
