Ft. Worth, TX - Medical City Alliance was named a Top General Hospital nationally by The Leapfrog Group, a national watchdog organization focused on healthcare safety and quality. The prestigious award is one of the most competitive honors American hospitals can receive.
The Top Hospital Award comes following the hospital's "A" Hospital Safety Grade, also from The Leapfrog Group.
"We are exceptionally proud of this accomplishment," said Glenn Wallace, CEO of Medical City Alliance. "This recognition serves as an objective opinion of the high quality care we provide at Medical City Alliance and is testament to our mission to the care and improvement of human life."
Medical City Alliance is one of only 37 hospitals recognized with this distinction in the United States and among only four in Texas, including sister facility Medical City Denton.
Performance across many areas of hospital care is considered in establishing the qualifications for the award, including infection rates, practices for safer surgery, maternity care, and the hospital's capacity to prevent medication errors. To qualify for the Top Hospitals distinction, hospitals must rank top among peers in the 2019 Leapfrog Hospital Survey, which assesses hospital performance on the highest known standards for quality and patient safety, and achieve top performance in its category.
