Piedmont Newnan Holds Record for Most A’s in Georgia; Earns Sixteenth Consecutive ‘A’ Grade from Leapfrog

Newnan, Ga. (Nov. 16, 2022) – Piedmont Newnan Hospital received an ‘A’ Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for fall 2022, a national designation recognizing Piedmont Newnan’s achievements in protecting patients from preventable harm and error in the hospital. This is the sixteenth consecutive grading period Piedmont Newnan has earned an ‘A’ grade, giving the hospital the longest streak of consistent A grades in the state of Georgia.

“At Piedmont Newnan, we take great pride in providing high-quality, patient-centered care to the people in the community that our hospital serves,” said Piedmont Newnan Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Mike Robertson. “It’s an amazing accomplishment for our team, and earning this ‘A’ grade for the sixteenth consecutive time demonstrates our continued commitment to the safety of our patients.”

The Leapfrog Group is an independent national watchdog organization with a 10-year history of assigning letter grades to general hospitals throughout the United States, based on a hospital’s ability to prevent medical errors and harm to patients. The grading system is peer-reviewed, fully transparent, and free to the public. Hospital Safety Grade results are based on more than 30 national performance measures and are updated each fall and spring.

“I applaud the hospital leadership and workforce for their strong commitment to safety and transparency,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “An ‘A’ Safety Grade is a sign that hospitals are continuously evaluating their performance, so that they can best protect patients. Your hospital team should be extremely proud of their dedication and achievement.”
