Rose Medical Center Continues to Earn National Recognition for Patient Safety

Rose has earned an "A" achievement for every grading cycle since 2012; only Colorado hospital to
maintain Straight A's.

Denver, CO, November 08, 2019 --(PR.com)-- The Leapfrog Group, a Washington D.C-based
organization aiming to improve health care quality and safety for consumers and purchasers, today
announced the fall 2019 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades and once again awarded Rose Medical Center
an "A" for achieving the highest national standards in patient safety. Rose is one of only 36 hospitals in
the United States and the only Colorado hospital to have earned an "A" every grading cycle since 2012.

“We are pleased to be recognized again for our dedication to patient safety,” Ryan Tobin, President and
CEO of Rose Medical Center. “This commitment to the very best patient care began with the hospital's
inception in the 1940s. This year, as we celebrate our 70th anniversary we recall the founders' vision 'to
serve the need of every creed' with an unwavering devotion to the very best care. We are honored to
continue to carry that responsibility and mission into the future.”

“This outstanding achievement shows longstanding commitment to a culture of safety that puts patients
first,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “For Rose Medical Center, saving
lives by preventing accidents, injuries, infections and errors is business as usual, and your community
should be proud. We commend the staff, faculty, volunteers, leadership and board of directors for their
never-ending quest for the highest standards of patient safety.”

The Safety Grade assigns letter grades of 'A', 'B', 'C', 'D' and 'F' to hospitals across the country based on
their performance in preventing medical errors, infections and other harms. Developed under the
guidance of a national Expert Panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 28 measures of publicly
available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,600 U.S. acute-care hospitals twice per year.
The Leapfrog's grading system is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public.
