BELOIT — Beloit Memorial Hospital is the only hospital in the Stateline Area to earn the top grade of “A” for the Leapfrog safety rating for two consecutive years in a row.

The Leapfrog Group is a national nonprofit watchdog that sets standards for excellence in patient care. Beloit Memorial Hospital was the only hospital to receive the “A” rating in South Central Wisconsin and North Central Illinois. Leapfrog assigns an A, B, C, D or F grade to general hospitals across the country based on over 30 performance measures reflecting errors, accidents, injuries and infections, as well as the systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm.

“We are honored to receive an “A” rating and to be recognized by the Leapfrog group,” said Dr. Roger Kapoor, Senior Vice President of Beloit Health System. “Excellence in healthcare isn’t just a goal for us — its our commitment. This recognition is a testament to the hard work and unwavering dedication of our entire team.”

“Everyone who works at Beloit Memorial Hospital should be proud of this ‘A’ Hospital Safety Grade,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “It takes complete dedication at every level, and an ironclad commitment to putting patients first. I thank Beloit Memorial Hospital, its leadership, clinicians, staff, and volunteers for caring so deeply for its patients and their safety.”


The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program exclusively based on hospital prevention of medical errors, infections and injuries that kill more than 500 patients a day nationally. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. Grades are updated twice annually in the fall and spring.
