14th consecutive “A” in fall 2021 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade
Irving, TX – Medical City Las Colinas has been awarded its fourteenth consecutive “A” in the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for fall 2021. This national distinction recognizes Medical City Las Colinas’ achievements in protecting patients from harm and error in the hospital.
The Leapfrog Group, an independent national watchdog organization, assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” grade to general hospitals across the country based on over thirty national performance measures reflecting errors, injuries, accidents and infections, as well as systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm.
The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program based exclusively on hospital prevention of medical errors and harms to patients. The grading system is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. Grades are updated twice annually, in the fall and spring.
Medical City Las Colinas is one of ten Medical City Healthcare hospitals to be recognized with an “A” including Medical City Alliance, Medical City Arlington, Medical City Dallas, Medical City Denton, Medical City Fort Worth, Medical City Lewisville, Medical City McKinney, Medical City Plano and Medical City Weatherford.
