Sharon Hospital earned an “A” Hospital Safety Grade from The Leapfrog Group, a national nonprofit watchdog. Leapfrog assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D” or “F” grade to general hospitals across the country based on over 30 measures of errors, accidents, injuries, and infections as well as the systems hospitals have in place to prevent them.  


“Our “A” rating is a tremendous achievement and represents the dedication of the Sharon Hospital team to keep our patients safe every day,” said Christina McCulloch, President of Sharon Hospital. “This accomplishment underscores our reputation as a community hospital that remains focused on patient safety.”

I thank Sharon Hospital, its leadership, clinicians, staff, and volunteers for caring so deeply for its patients and their safety.”


The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program focused exclusively on preventable medical errors, infections and injuries that kill more than 500 patients a day nationally. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. Grades are updated twice annually, in the fall and spring.
