Community Medical Center Nationally Recognized with an ‘A’ Leapfrog Safety Grade
November 6, 2023
Community Medical Center (CMC) earned an “A” Hospital Safety Grade from the Leapfrog Group, a national watchdog that sets standards for excellence in patient care. Leapfrog assigns an A, B, C, D or F grade to general hospitals across the country based on over 30 national performance measures reflecting errors, accidents, injuries and infections, as well as the systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm.
“I am proud that Community Medical Center is listed as a top performer in patient safety,” says Bob Gomes, CEO at Community Medical Center. “I want to congratulate our staff, doctors, nurses and hospital leadership for being a champion for patient care. This well-deserved recognition is due to their endurance and dependability in delivering high quality care day in and day out.”
The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program exclusively based on hospital prevention of medical errors, infections and injuries that kill more than 500 patients a day nationally. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. Grades are updated twice annually in the fall and spring.
“Earning an ‘A’ Grade means Community Medical Center made a true commitment to put patients first,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “We congratulate the leadership, Board, clinicians, staff and volunteers that all had a role to play in this achievement.”
