Interesting Fact
It is noteworthy that Bronx-Lebanon's four consecutive A-Ratings (Fall 2014, Spring 2015, Fall 2015, and Spring 2016) from The Leapfrog Group (an independent nonprofit which compiles its results under the guidance of the nation's leading patient safety experts) placed it in the upper echelon of the safest hospitals in the nation. Bronx-Lebanon was the only hospital in the Bronx, and one of three hospitals in New York City, to receive the "A" grade during the Spring, 2016 time period. Additionally, Bronx-Lebanon's Stroke Gold Plus and Target: Stroke Honor Roll Award Designation from the American Heart and American Stroke Associations, and Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award for Heart Failure Care from the American Heart Association, as well as selection to participate in the National Million Hearts® Cardiovascular Disease Risk Reduction Model and Five Star Rating on core measurements for labor and delivery excellence related to normal deliveries and cesarean sections, are further confirmations of the high quality care it provides.
