Maury Regional nationally recognized with an ‘A’ for the spring 2020 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade


COLUMBIA, Tenn. — Maury Regional Medical Center (MRMC) was awarded an ‘A’ in the spring 2020 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade, a national distinction recognizing MRMC’s achievements providing safer health care. This is the 13th consecutive reporting period in which MRMC earned an ‘A’ rating.

The Leapfrog Group is an independent national watchdog organization committed to health care quality and safety. The Safety Grade is a letter grade assigned to all general hospitals across the country and updated every six months, assessing how well the hospital prevents medical errors and other harms to patients.

“This 13th consecutive ‘A’ rating for patient safety from The Leapfrog Group reflects Maury Regional Medical Center’s commitment to continually monitoring and evaluating our performance across national patient safety measures,” said MRH CEO Alan Watson. “Our community can rest assured that our employees and physicians are dedicated to providing outstanding care that prioritizes our patients’ safety.”

Developed under the guidance of a national expert panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses up to 28 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,600 U.S. acute-care hospitals twice per year. The Hospital Safety Grade’s methodology is peer-reviewed and fully transparent, and the results are free to the public.

“As the nation copes with a challenging pandemic, our gratitude extends to hospital leadership and health care workers everywhere for their tremendous dedication,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “We hope this ‘A’ helps to thank the people who work for Maury Regional Medical Center. They are role models in putting patients first and their service has been extraordinary in our country’s time of need.”
