Unlike some modern school curriculums, not everyone gets a prize when it comes to hospitals and safety. That's why it's great news that a newly-updated national ranking has given 14 Missouri hospitals a stellar A rating for patient safety.

You might recall that a few weeks ago, I shared the news that 13 Missouri hospitals had been rated as 'A' for their patient safety skills. That was based on complete 2023 data. This new ranking from Hospital Safety Grade now includes the first quarter of 2024 and has been issued as a Spring update that now has 14 Missouri medical facilities with the highest rating possible when it comes to patient safety.

All hospitals were rated for the safety of patients in regards to errors, injuries, accidents and infections. Here is the newly-updated best of the best for Missouri hospitals:

It's nice to be able to share good news about the hard-working medical professionals that guard our health in Missouri. A job well done by all.
