Houston Medical Center Receives an “A” for Patient Safety in Fall 2017

 

November 13, 2017


Warner Robins, GA -- The Leapfrog Group, a national nonprofit health care ratings organization, recently released new Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades. The Safety Grade assigns letter grades of A, B, C, D and F to hospitals nationwide based on their performance in preventing medical errors, infections and other harms. Houston Medical Center was one of 832 awarded an “A” for its commitment to keeping patients safe and meeting the highest safety standards in the U.S. 

“Our staff is consistently committed to providing patient-centered care,” stated Charles Briscoe, Chief Operating Officer for Houston Healthcare. “With patient safety at the forefront of what we do every day, we are focused and dedicated to improving the healthcare of the communities we serve. Taking care of our patients and their families is a team effort – from our Board, staff, and physicians – and we are pleased to again be recognized for the quality care received in our facility.” 

Developed under the guidance of a Blue Ribbon National Expert Panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 27 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign A, B, C, D and F grades to more than 2,600 U.S. hospitals twice per year. It is calculated by top patient safety experts, peer reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. 

“It takes consistent, unwavering dedication to patients to achieve the highest standards of patient safety. An ‘A’ Safety Grade recognizes hospitals for this accomplishment,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “We congratulate the clinicians, Board, management and staff of Houston Medical Center for showing the country what it means to put patient safety first.”
