ROCKY MOUNT — Nash UNC Health Care has received its third consecutive Grade A from The Leapfrog Group, a national nonprofit organization that collects and reports hospital performance data and works with national experts to establish standards to which all participating hospitals are measured against.

The Leapfrog Group released its fall 2021 report for hospitals on Wednesday.

“Thanks to our board’s leadership, the partnership of our medical staff and the commitment from our staff, we now have three consecutive A ratings to reflect the high-quality, consistent care we provide to our patients and community each and every day,” said Dr. L. Lee Isley, president and CEO of Nash UNC Health Care.  “I am so proud of the entire team for the progress made in such a short period of time.”

According to The Leapfrog Group, survey results are used to educate consumers and purchasers about the quality and safety of hospitals in their community. The Leapfrog Group says hospitals that voluntarily submit their data to the Leapfrog Hospital Survey are to be commended for their commitment to transparency and educating their patients about the quality and safety of the care they provide.

Only 32% of hospitals received an A rating this fall. Nash UNC Health Care has consistently improved its scores relating to patient experience, surgical site infections, hospital acquired conditions, patient safety indicators and patient falls, among others.

“Though our teams have been incredibly challenged over the last year and a half with the pandemic, they have remained relentlessly focused on improving the quality of care we provide to our patients and their families,” said Isley. 

Nash UNC Health Care is a nonprofit hospital authority composed of four licensed hospitals totaling 345 beds: Nash General Hospital, Nash Day Hospital, Coastal Plain Hospital and the Bryant T. Aldridge Rehabilitation Center.
