100 SafeCare Hospitals is not an award. It is a mission-driven, distinction from The SafeCare Group to inspire healthcare leaders to excel in providing safe and effective care of the highest quality and value. The SafeCare Group® published the first listing in 2013 to recognize hospitals that excelled in CMS measures of HRRP - “quality of care”, HACRP - “patient safety", and HVBP “efficiency of care”. These are evidence-based metrics of medical and surgical infections, medical and surgical complications, medical and surgical readmissions. We believe that a listing of hospitals with low rates of infections, complications, and readmissions would incentivize caregivers to improve care and reduce unnecessary errors that harm patients.
