Plano – Medical City Plano received an “A” Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for fall 2021. This national distinction recognizes Medical City Plano’s achievements in protecting patients from harm and error in the hospital.
“We are committed to providing this community with high-quality, safe and compassionate care,” says Jyric Sims, CEO of Medical City Plano. “The Leapfrog distinction reinforces our commitment to our patients as part of our mission to the care and improvement of human life.”
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.
“An ‘A’ Safety Grade is a tremendous achievement, of which this community should be extremely proud,” says Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “I thank the leadership and workforce of Medical City Plano for its commitment to prioritizing patients and their safety, especially during these trying times.”
Medical City Plano 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 Las Colinas, Medical City Lewisville, Medical City McKinney and Medical City Weatherford.
