Milford Regional Medical Center Nationally Recognized with an ‘A’ Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for 7th Consecutive Time!

 Milford Regional Medical Center received an “A” Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for Fall 2021. This national distinction, which Milford Regional has received for an unprecedented seven consecutive times, recognizes the Medical Center’s achievements in protecting patients from harm and error in the hospital.

“It is an honor to receive this Leapfrog recognition. To receive it seven times in a row is an incredible distinction for Milford Regional,” says Edward J. Kelly, president and CEO of Milford Regional. “This continued recognition is a testament to the dedication our entire team at Milford Regional has to keeping our patients safe every single day. “

The Leapfrog Group, an independent national watchdog organization, assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” grade to general hospitals across the country based on over thirty national performance measures reflecting errors, injuries, accidents and infections, as well as systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm.

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program based exclusively on hospital prevention of medical errors and harm to patients. The grading system is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. Grades are updated twice annually, in the fall and spring.

“An ‘A’ Safety Grade is a tremendous achievement, of which this community should be extremely proud,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “I thank the leadership and workforce of Milford Regional for its commitment to prioritizing patients and their safety, especially during these trying times.”
