Oswego Hospital has been awarded an 'A' for providing safe, high quality care to its patients by the Leapfrog Group for the 3rd consecutive time.
With this distinction, Oswego Hospital joins hospitals across the country who are providing the highest quality of patient care. It's the second time this year that the hospital has been awarded an ‘A’ and it’s the only hospital in Oswego and Onondaga County that earned the top grade of 'A' from the Leapfrog Group.
Only six percent of the hospitals in New York State earned an 'A.' The Leapfrog Group provided grades for 2,633 hospitals nationwide.
I'd like to thank our staff for their dedication to improving care. I also encourage community members to use our many excellent healthcare services and experience this care firsthand.
