Milford Regional Earns an ‘A’ for Patient Safety

An independent hospital watchdog group has awarded Milford Regional Medical Center the highest grade in an elite national ratings program and has recognized the hospital for its strong commitment to patient safety.

Milford Regional has earned a Hospital Safety Score of A  from The Leapfrog Group, which grades hospitals on errors, injuries, accidents, and infections. The Hospital Safety Score is the gold standard rating for patient safety, compiled under the guidance of the nation’s leading patient safety experts and administered by The Leapfrog Group.

More than 2,500 U.S. general hospitals were assigned scores in October 2015, with only 773 hospitals receiving an A grade.

The first and only hospital safety rating to be peer-reviewed in the Journal of Patient Safety, the Hospital Safety Score is free to the public and designed to give consumers information they can use to protect themselves and their families when facing a hospital stay.
