Pair of local hospitals receive improved marks in latest safety report

Two area hospitals improved their grades on a national report card this spring after receiving Cs last fall for their patient quality care.

Glendale Adventist Medical Center received an A, while Providence St. Joseph got a B based on the 28 categories that nonprofit Leapfrog Group averaged out to determine the grades. Dignity Health Glendale Memorial Hospital once again was given a C. The data was pooled from surveys conducted by the American Hospital Assn. and Medicare.
