Weatherford – Medical City Weatherford achieved an “A” Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for fall 2021, a national distinction recognizing the hospital’s accomplishments 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 more than 30 national performance measures reflecting errors, injuries, accidents and infections, as well as systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm.
“This outstanding safety rating reflects our commitment at Medical City Weatherford to providing unparalleled care in every action, every patient, every time,” says Medical City Weatherford CEO Sean Kamber. “The dedication to safety is another reason our community turns to us as the destination of choice for healthcare excellence in Weatherford and surrounding areas.”
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 Weatherford is one of ten Medical City Healthcare hospitals to be recognized with an “A,” including 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 Plano.
