Maury Regional Medical Center receives ‘A’ for patient safety from Leapfrog


COLUMBIA, Tenn. — Maury Regional Medical Center (MRMC) earned an “A” Hospital Safety Grade, the highest possible ranking, for the spring of 2024 from The Leapfrog Group, a national nonprofit watchdog.

Leapfrog assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D” or “F” grade to general hospitals across the country based on over 30 measures of errors, accidents, injuries and infections as well as the systems hospitals have in place to prevent them. 

“I’m extremely grateful for all Maury Regional Medical Center staff members who consistently show their commitment to patient safety, which makes this recognition possible,” said Maury Regional Health CEO Martin Chaney, MD. “This acknowledgement from The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is a direct reflection of the diligence our employees and medical staff have when caring for patients.”

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program focused exclusively on preventable medical errors, infections and injuries that kill more than 500 patients a day nationally. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. Grades are updated twice annually, in the fall and spring.

“Everyone who works at Maury Regional Medical Center should be proud of this ‘A’ Hospital Safety Grade,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “It takes complete dedication of at every level, and an ironclad commitment to putting patients first. I thank Maury Regional Medical Center, its leadership, clinicians, staff and volunteers for caring so deeply for its patients and their safety.”
