Fort Worth – Medical City Fort Worth is one of eleven Medical City Healthcare hospitals – and the only hospital in the Fort Worth medical district – to receive an “A” safety rating from The Leapfrog Group, a Washington D.C. based organization aimed at improving healthcare quality and safety of patients.
“We are so proud to have been recognized for excellence in patient safety for the fifth consecutive time,” says Jyric Sims, FACHE, CEO of Medical City Fort Worth. “Patient safety is our top priority and this score validates why we are the destination of choice for healthcare excellence in the Fort Worth medical district.”
Developed under the guidance of a national expert Panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses up to 27 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,600 U.S. acute-care hospitals twice per year. The Hospital Safety Grade’s methodology is peer-reviewed and fully transparent, and the results are free to the public.
“We are extremely grateful to hospital leadership and health care workers who have remained steadfast in prioritizing patient safety as our nation battles COVID-19,” says Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “This ‘A’ is a testament to the care and commitment of those who work for Medical City Healthcare hospitals. With the current pandemic exposing existing flaws within the U.S. health care system, we appreciate you putting patient safety first. Lives depend on it.”
Medical City Alliance, 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 North Hills, and Medical City Plano are all recognized with “A” grades for protecting patients from harm and providing safer health care.
