The Leapfrog Group, a national, nonprofit health care patient-safety organization, recently gave Citrus Memorial Hospital its fourth consecutive B rating since the fall of 2017, making it one of the best-ranked hospitals in our area.
This fourth B marks a significant turnaround since 2015, when HCA Healthcare began leasing the hospital. Leapfrog gave Citrus Memorial a grade of D previously that same year.
Its association with HCA has obviously been successful for CMH. And Citrus Memorial CEO Ralph Aleman is justifiably proud of the rating, while still noting the ultimate goal of the hospital is to achieve an A rating."
