Kaiser Permanente Northern California Hospitals Receive Top Patient Safety Scores

The Leapfrog Group’s annual safety report shows Kaiser Permanente hospitals received top scores for limiting patient injuries, reducing medical errors, and preventing infections.

The Leapfrog Group gave 14 Kaiser Permanente hospitals across Northern California a top score of “A” in its annual safety report, which examined and graded more than 2,600 hospitals throughout the United States.

Kaiser Permanente hospitals in Northern California with “A” scores include: Antioch, Fresno, Redwood City, Roseville, Sacramento, San Francisco, San Rafael, Santa Clara, San Leandro, Santa Rosa, South Sacramento, South San Francisco, Vallejo, and Walnut Creek. Additionally, Kaiser Permanente hospitals in Fremont, Manteca, Modesto, Oakland, San Jose, and Vacaville received a “B” score.

Kaiser Permanente SSF Reduces Carbon Footprint

With the installation of more than 100 new solar panels and other equipment upgrades, Kaiser Permanente South San Francisco is becoming an increasingly sustainable facility.

The investment is part of a program-wide goal of being carbon neutral by 2020 and carbon positive by 2025, Support Services Administrator Bill Bowdle said.

“Having a clean environment is key to total health and to our organizational mission,” he said. “We’re committed to making the kinds of investments that allow us to do our part to take care of our communities.”

To be carbon neutral, Kaiser Permanente needs to offset as much greenhouse gas as it emits. To be carbon positive, it must offset more than it emits. The goals are ambitious, but attainable.
