Recent recognition for quality and safety

The Massachusetts Health & Hospital Association (MHA) honored Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Needham (BID Needham) with a first-place Accountable Care Compass Award, which celebrates provider excellence and innovation in the delivery of high-quality, safe and efficient care. The “Enhancing Culture & Leadership” award recognized BID Needham for sustaining transformational change by creating a culture of safety in a hospital setting.

BID Needham holds an “A” grade in The Leapfrog Group’s Spring 2023 Hospital Safety Score. Hospitals that earn top marks nationally in the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade, have achieved the highest safety standards in the country. BID Needham is one of 823 hospitals nationally to receive an “A” for its commitment to quality and safety.

In addition, in a recent survey of employees conducted by Press Ganey, an independent third party, the hospital measured in the 96th percentile among regional hospitals for providing a “culture of safety” for staff and patients. Building a culture of safety starts with our work force—we also rank in the 97th percentile of our peer group for job satisfaction, as shown in our third-party employee survey.
