BAYONNE, NJ – Just months after being named as top teaching hospital from the same independent, nonprofit grading system, CarePoint Health’s Bayonne Medical Center has been awarded an “A” grade for safety by the Leapfrog Group.

This is the fourth consecutive time the hospital has earned top marks.

“Bayonne Medical Center continues to strive in providing a level of value and medical resources of high quality to all who need them, as part of our mission, vision and value,” said Dr. Vijayant Singh, Chief Hospital Executive at Bayonne Medical Center. “Our most recent Leapfrog A scores are a reflection of our commitment to this mission.”

The grades are awarded based on an analysis of 28 safety measures created by the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality at Johns Hopkins Medicine. Patients admitted at D and F hospitals, according to a statement released, face almost twice the risk of death than patients in “A” hospitals.
