More than half of the hospitals in Broward, Dade and Palm Beach Counties in Florida, are affiliated with Sheridan Healthcare. These facilities received A grades from the Leapfrog Group. By comparison, only 37 percent of all Florida hospitals received A ratings.
The Leapfrog Group is a national nonprofit organization that assesses critical hospital performance measures pertaining to patient safety. Since 2001, these assessments have allowed hospitals to benchmark their progress in improving patient safety and empowered healthcare consumers to make informed decisions in choosing a hospital . The biannual evaluations assess quality and safety based on national performance standards. Multiple hospital services and processes are included in the survey.
Measurable clinical excellence will always be central to Sheridan’s mission.
