By Antonia Ehlers, PR and Media Relations, Kaiser Permanente Northern California

Kaiser Permanente Antioch Medical Center is named to the Cal Hospital Compare 2023 Patient Safety Honor Roll for providing patients with safe care across dozens of measures.

The honor roll recognizes 82 of the state’s 347 adult, acute care hospitals. Kaiser Permanente Northern California had 14 hospitals on the honor roll – representing 17% of the hospitals recognized.

The Patient Safety Honor Roll uses objective, publicly available patient safety measures to evaluate hospitals across a variety of domains including hospital acquired infections, adverse patient safety events, sepsis management, patient experience, and Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade.

“We are honored to be recognized as a leader in patient safety,” said Chris Boyd, senior vice president and area manager of Kaiser Permanente’s Diablo Service Area. “Patient safety is at the heart of everything we do. We are incredibly proud of our physicians, nurses and staff members who make a difference every day.”

Kaiser Permanente Northern California hospitals are consistently recognized as among the country’s best for outstanding patient safety, positive outcomes, and patient-care experience.

“We are committed to keeping our patients safe from harm, as well as providing outstanding quality and excellent personalized care,” said Kaiser Permanente Antioch Medical Center Physician in Chief Sharon Mowat, MD.

Hospitals on the honor roll had to meet a rigorous threshold of performance by having at least two-thirds of measure results above the 50th percentile and no measure result below the 10th percentile and/or Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade A for the past three reporting periods.
