Granville Health System Continues to Provide Quality Care Close to Home
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Oxford, NC – November 8, 2023 — Granville Health System, a trusted source of healthcare in Granville County and surroundings areas, is proud of our 4-star rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). This is a tremendous achievement and shows our place as a top healthcare provider. It stands out even more in contrast to our recent ‘D’ grade from “Leapfrog”, which does not match the high-quality care we work hard to provide.
Granville Health System did not participate in the latest Leapfrog survey. The Leapfrog Group is not a regulatory agency. Our focus has always been on complying with the extensive criteria of CMS, which thoroughly evaluates crucial areas such as patient safety, quality of care, and patient satisfaction. Our 4-star CMS rating distinguishes Granville Health System as a leader in quality and patient safety. This rating is an indicator of excellence, placing Granville Health System among the elite healthcare providers at the national level and highlighting our commitment and dedication to the health and well-being of our community.
Granville Health System is continuously advancing our patient safety protocols, providing ongoing education for our staff and enhancing the quality of our healthcare services. We are in constant communication with all governing healthcare bodies and will consider Leapfrog’s survey methods and criteria for our future strategic planning.
We welcome the community and the surrounding areas to review our performance details on the CMS Hospital Compare website at https://www.medicare.gov/care-compare/?providerType=Hospital.
Granville Health System is unwavering in our mission to promote wellbeing; accelerate healing; and inspire hope.
