Milford Regional Medical Center Receives an “A” for Patient Safety

Once again, Milford Regional Medical Center received an “A” for patient safety from The Leapfrog Group, a nonprofit organization committed to driving quality, safety and transparency in the U.S. health care system. The Medical Center was one of 832 hospitals nationwide to receive an “A” for its commitment to reducing errors, infections, and accidents that can harm patients, ranking it among the safest hospitals in the United States.

“It takes consistent, unwavering dedication to patients to achieve the highest standards of patient safety,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “An ‘A’ Safety Grade recognizes hospitals for this accomplishment. We congratulate the clinicians, Board, management and staff of Milford Regional Medical Center for showing the country what it takes to put patient safety first.”  

Developed under the guidance of an Expert Panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 27 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign A, B, C, D and F grades to more than 2,600 U.S. hospitals twice per year. It is calculated by top patient safety experts, peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. 

“Patient safety is a top priority for everyone that works at Milford Regional,” says Edward J. Kelly, president & CEO of Milford Regional. “Receiving an ‘A’ grade for hospital safety by The Leapfrog Group once again is a real testament to the diligence and hard work of our physicians, nurses and staff in their daily efforts to provide patients with care that is both high quality and safety focused. They are to be commended for their commitment to safety that brought us this national recognition.”
