DALLAS Ten Medical City Healthcare hospitals have been awarded an “A” Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for spring 2022, more than any other hospital system in Texas.

Medical City Arlington, Medical City Dallas, Medical City Denton, Medical City Fort Worth, Medical City Frisco, Medical City Las Colinas, Medical City Lewisville, Medical City McKinney, Medical City Plano and Medical City Weatherford are recognized with an “A” for providing safe care to patients and the community. 

“This exceptional recognition is the result of a shared commitment across Medical City Healthcare to providing a safe environment for patients, physicians and colleagues,” says Erol Akdamar, FACHE, president of Medical City Healthcare. “These superior safety ratings reflect our dedication to excellence always in every action, for every patient, every time.”

The Leapfrog Group, an independent national watchdog organization, assigns letter grades to hospitals based on their record of patient safety, helping consumers protect themselves and their families from errors, injuries, accidents and potential infections. The grading system is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. Grades are updated twice annually, in the fall and spring.

“As our healthcare system continues to feel the strain of the pandemic, I thank the workforce and leadership of Medical City Healthcare for sustained commitment to patient safety, day in and day out,” says Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “An ‘A’ Safety Grade is an outstanding achievement, and one that is not possible without a 24/7 effort by the entire health care workforce to protect patients from harm. This community should be proud.”
