Maury Regional Medical Center nationally recognized for patient safety


COLUMBIA, Tenn. — Maury Regional Medical Center (MRMC) has again been awarded an ‘A’ in the spring 2022 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade, a national distinction recognizing the medical center’s achievements in protecting patients from preventable harms and errors. This is the 17th consecutive reporting period in which MRMC earned an ‘A’ safety rating.

The Leapfrog Group is an independent national watchdog organization committed to health care quality and safety. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is a letter grade assigned to general hospitals nationwide and updated every six months. During the evaluation process, hospitals are assessed on how well they prevent medical errors, injuries, accidents and infections as well as the systems they have in place to prevent other harms to patients in their care.

“Patient safety is the utmost priority at Maury Regional Medical Center,” said Maury Regional Health CEO Davin Turner, DO. “This recognition from The Leapfrog Group reflects our entire health care team’s commitment to providing the safest and highest quality care for all our patients. I am appreciative of all the medical staff members and employees at Maury Regional Medical Center who have consistently made this recognition for safety possible.”

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses up to 30 national performance measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to nearly 3,000 U.S. acute-care hospitals twice per year. The methodology of this process is peer-reviewed and fully transparent with results free to the public.

“As our health care system continues to feel the strain of the pandemic, I thank the workforce and leadership of Maury Regional Medical Center for sustained commitment to patient safety, day in and day out,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “An ‘A’ Safety Grade is an outstanding achievement, and one that is not possible without a 24/7 effort by the entire health care workforce to protect patients from harm. This community should be proud.”
