Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about hospitals and physicians, has awarded Roxborough Memorial Hospital with the 2015 Patient Safety Excellence Award™. One of only 467 hospitals across the nation to be recognized, the distinction places Roxborough Memorial Hospital within the top 10% of all hospitals evaluated for their excellent performance in safeguarding patients from serious, potentially preventable complications during their hospital stays. In terms of patient safety, Healthgrades found that Patient Safety Award recipients all performed higher in clinical outcomes than non-recipients for all the conditions and procedures evaluated.

Patient safety is at the core of everything our physicians, our nurses and our entire staff do. We are honored to be recognized with this prestigious distinction.
