Easley Hospital Scores Well
Upstate Business Journal – February 15, 2013
Baptist Easley Hospital was the only rural hospital in South Carolina to earn a top performer designation by the Leapfrog Group, the hospital ranking organization said. The designation recognizes hospitals “that deliver the highest quality care by preventing medical errors and reducing hospital readmissions for patients being treated for conditions like pneumonia and heart attack.” Baptist Easley was selected as a top hospital out of nearly 1,200 rural hospitals that participated in Leapfrog’s annual survey. “This award is proof that the care and safety of our patients is our top priority,” said Roddey E. Gettys III, CEO of Baptist Easley.
