Coshocton, Ohio (November 11, 2021) — Coshocton Regional Medical Center received an “A” grade in the Fall 2021 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade, a national distinction recognizing Coshocton Regional Medical Center’s achievements in protecting patients from errors, injuries, accidents, and infections.
“An ‘A’ Safety Grade is a tremendous achievement, of which our community and staff should be extremely proud,” said Stephanie Conn, Chief Executive Officer. “I thank each of our team members for their commitment to prioritizing patients and their safety, especially during these trying times.”

The Leapfrog Group, an independent national watchdog organization, assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” grade to general hospitals across the country based on over thirty national performance measures reflecting errors, injuries, accidents, and infections, as well as systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital rating program based exclusively on hospital prevention of medical errors and harms to patients. The grading system is peer-reviewed, fully transparent, and free to the public. Grades are updated twice annually, in the fall and spring.
