Lake Huron Medical Center Nationally Recognized with an ‘A’ Grade for the  Fall 2020 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades 

Lake Huron Medical Center was awarded an ‘A’ in the fall 2020 Leapfrog  Hospital Safety Grade, a national distinction recognizing the hospital’s achievements in  providing safer health care. Lake Huron Medical Center is the only hospital in St. Clair County that has consistently earned an A, the highest grade, since 2018. 

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. 

“We are extremely proud to have earned straight ‘A’ grades for hospital safety since fall of 2018 because it reflects the commitment that Lake Huron Medical Center, our physicians, staff and  nurses make – every day – when caring for patients,” said Jose Kottoor, Lake Huron Medical  Center, Chief Executive Officer. “We have a safety culture at LHMC and process in place to  earn the A grade consistently for the last several years. Our dedicated staff remains committed to  providing the highest quality of care, even in times of crisis, to our community.” 

“We are extremely grateful to hospital leadership and health care workers who have remained  steadfast in prioritizing patient safety as our nation battles COVID-19,” said Leah Binder,  president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “This ‘A’ is a testament to the care and commitment  of those who work for Lake Huron Medical Center. With the current pandemic exposing existing  flaws within the U.S. health care system, we appreciate you putting patient safety first. Lives  depend on it.”  

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.
