Methodist Mansfield Medical Center was awarded an "A" in the fall 2020 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade, a national distinction recognizing the hospital’s achievements protecting patients from harm and providing safer health care. The Leapfrog Group is an independent national watchdog organization committed to health care quality and safety. The Safety Grade assigns an A, B, C, D or F grade to all general hospitals across the country and is updated every six months. It is based on a hospital’s performance in preventing medical errors, injuries, accidents, infections and other harms to patients in their care.
“Methodist Mansfield Medical Center’s No. 1 priority is the quality of care we provide to our patients in a safe and compassionate environment,” says Juan Fresquez, president of Methodist Mansfield Medical Center. “We are proud of our consistent 'A' performance in these surveys and the commitment to excellence and dedication of our physicians, nurses and staff.”
“I’m so proud of Methodist Mansfield for earning this achievement yet again,” says Pam Stoyanoff, FACHE, President and Chief Operating Officer, Methodist Health System. “Achieving this standard of patient safety is one thing, but maintaining it is what makes me the proudest.”
Developed under the guidance of a national Expert Panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses up to 27 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.
