RALEIGH, N.C. (May 1, 2024) – We are pleased to announce that WakeMed Raleigh Campus and WakeMed Cary Hospital received “A” grades on the latest Hospital Safety Grades, which were released May 1 by The Leapfrog Group. WakeMed North Hospital received a “B” grade.

The Spring Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades are based on performance against 30 measures of errors, accidents, injuries and infections, as well as the systems hospitals have in place to prevent them. All three of WakeMed’s hospitals scored above the Leapfrog mean (average) in nearly all measures.

According to The Leapfrog Group, only 29% of hospitals nationally received A grades on the spring 2024 scores. WakeMed Raleigh Campus and WakeMed Cary Hospital have now earned the elite “Straight A” designation for having received A grades five times in a row.
