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

Dec 14, 2020

Leapfrog-300-x-200Doctors Medical Center was awarded an “A” from The Leapfrog Group’s Fall 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.

“Patient safety is our top priority here at Doctors Medical Center. We are proud to receive this rating as it recognizes our commitment to placing safety at the forefront of the care we provide, which is more important than ever as we continue dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Warren Kirk, CEO of Doctors Medical Center. “Nothing is more important to us than offering our patients trusted care in a safe environment.”

“We are extremely grateful to hospital leadership and health care workers who have remained steadfast in prioritizing patient safety as our nation battles COVID-19,” said Leah Binder, President and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “This ‘A’ is a testament to the care and commitment of those who work for Doctors Medical Center. With the current pandemic exposing existing flaws within the U.S. health care system, we appreciate you putting patient safety first. Lives depend on it.”

Developed under the guidance of a national expert panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses up to 27 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 fall 2020 update. To see full grade details and access patient tips for staying safe in the hospital, visit hospitalsafetygrade.org.
