MERCY MAKES THE GRADE

 

November 10, 2017



The Leapfrog Group, a national nonprofit health care ratings organization, recently released new 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. Mercy Regional Medical Center was one of only 832 hospitals in the nation and 18 in Colorado to receive an ‘A’ for its commitment to keeping patients safe and meeting the highest safety standards in the U.S. This is the eleventh consecutive ‘A’ grade Mercy has received since the fall of 2012.

“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 Mercy for showing the country what it means to put patient safety first.”
