Doctors Medical Center Awarded Top Grade in Patient Safety from Leapfrog Group

Apr 30, 2020

Modesto, Calif. – April 30, 2020 – Doctors Medical Center was awarded an “A” from The Leapfrog Group’s Spring 2020 Hospital Safety Grade, a national distinction recognizing the hospital’s achievements protecting patients from harm and providing safe healthcare for the Central Valley.

The Hospital Safety Grade is designed to give consumers information they can use to make healthcare decisions for themselves or a loved one. The Safety Grade assigns an A, B, C, D or F grade to all general hospitals across the country based on their performance in preventing medical errors, injuries, accidents and infections.

“Our clinical leaders regularly review our patient care processes and compare our data to nationally recognized benchmarks and best practices. We focus on driving improvements in care delivery and patient satisfaction every day,” said Warren Kirk, CEO of Doctors Medical Center. “This rating recognizes our commitment to placing safety at the forefront of our patients’ care. Nothing is more important to us than offering our patients trusted care in a safe environment.”

“As the nation copes with a challenging pandemic, our gratitude extends to hospital leadership and health care workers everywhere for their tremendous dedication,” said Leah Binder, President and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “We hope this ‘A’ helps to thank people who work at Doctors Medical Center. They are role models in putting patients first, and their service has been extraordinary in our country’s time of need.”

Developed under the guidance of a national expert panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses up to 28 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,600 U.S. acute-care hospitals twice per year. The grades are peer-reviewed, fully transparent and the results are free to the public.

Doctors Medical Center was awarded an “A” grade today, when Leapfrog announced grades for the spring 2020 update. To see full grade details and access patient tips for staying safe in the hospital, visit hospitalsafetygrade.org.
