Thanks to the efforts of WellOK's Board of Directors, two more hospitals in our area are doing the voluntary Leapfrog voluntary survey.
Oklahoma Surgical Hospital completed and submitted their survey at the end of 2015. Hillcrest Medical Center announced they will do the survey in 2016.
These are two giant steps forward in WellOK's quest for transparency in our region's healthcare. Both Oklahoma Surgical Hospital and Hillcrest Medical Center are to be congratulated for this contribution to patients in the greater Tulsa area.
The Leapfrog Group announced 1750 hospitals in the US. a record number, have enrolled in the hospital survey program.
Leapfrog Group published the Fall 2015 hospital safety ratings. These safety ratings are derived from publicly available data for over 4000 hospitals in the US. Bailey Medical Center in Owasso continues to carry an "A" rating for safety. Saint Francis South on 91st Street just achieved an "A" safety rating.
