Florida Medical Center Receives an “A” in Patient Safety from The Leapfrog Group

Mar 3, 2020

Fort Lauderdale, Florida (May 5, 2015) – For the second consecutive year, Florida Medical Center earns an “A” in The Leapfrog Group’s Spring 2015 Hospital Safety Score. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Score rating system is designed to give consumers information they can use to make the best healthcare decisions for themselves or a loved one.

The Leapfrog Group, a non-profit organization that provides healthcare information to consumers, assigns “A,” “B,” “C,” “D” or “F” scores to U.S. hospitals based on their performance in keeping patients safe from preventable medical errors, injuries, accidents and infections. The seven Tenet Healthcare Florida hospitals’ “A” scores are part of The Leapfrog Group’s spring 2015 report and can be found in the latest update to the Hospital Safety Score.

“This recognition from The Leapfrog Group is proof that patient safety is a top priority at our hospital,” said Gabrielle Finley-Hazle, CEO of Florida Medical Center.
The Leapfrog Group evaluated and graded more than 2,500 hospitals nationwide. Only 782 (about 30 percent) of hospitals received an “A” score. The Hospital Safety Score was compiled under the guidance of the nation’s leading experts in patient safety and is designed to provide the public information that can be used to protect themselves and their families. The Leapfrog Group releases the reports on a biannual basis.
