Kendall Regional Medical Center was honored with an “A” Hospital Safety Score by The Leapfrog Group, an independent national nonprofit run by employers and other large purchasers of health benefits.
The A score was awarded by A thru F scores assigned to U.S. hospitals based on preventable medical errors, injuries accidents, and infections.
The Hospital Safety Score was compiled under the guidance of the nation’s leading experts on patient safety and is designed to give the public information they can use to protect themselves and their families.
“We are proud to have been recognized for this accomplishment, as it is a true reflection of the hard work and dedication of our physicians, nurses & staff. Quality and patient safety are our utmost priority”, said Scott Cihak, Chief Executive Officer of Kendall Regional Medical Center.
“Hospitals like this that earn an A have demonstrated their commitment to their patients and their community,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “I congratulate Kendall Regional Medical Center for its safety excellence…”
