Silver Cross Hospital

The way you should be treated.™

Silver Cross Hospital has once again been recognized for its dedication to patient safety by being awarded an “A” Hospital Safety Grade by The Leapfrog Group, a Washington D.C-based organization aiming to improve health care quality and safety for consumers and purchasers. Only 37 out of 107 hospitals in Illinois received an “A,” and Silver Cross is one of them. In fact, this is the seventh straight A Silver Cross has been awarded by Leapfrog for its efforts in protecting patients from harm and meeting the highest safety standards in the U.S. The Safety Grade assigns an A, B, C, D or F grade to hospitals across the country based on their performance in preventing medical errors, infections and other harms among patients in their care.
