VAN NUYS, Calif. -- In its Spring 2024 Hospital Safety Grade review conducted by the Leapfrog Group (, Valley Presbyterian Hospital earned the top grade of “A.” The Hospital Safety Grade, widely regarded as the gold standard measure of patient safety, is given twice a year to participating hospitals seeking objective and transparent evaluation of their performance.

One of the core values of Valley Presbyterian Hospital is to get better, every day with regards to improving the quality and safety of care. While this latest grade is strong evidence of how that core value is affecting change and making a difference to patients, it is one of many accomplishments that the organization has earned over the past several years in the areas of patient safety, patient satisfaction and employee engagement.
