McLaren Central Michigan (MCM) received an “A” grade, the highest score possible, in the Fall 2018 Hospital Safety ScoreSM report. MCM is the only hospital in the area to score an “A” for Fall 2018.

Developed under the guidance of a National Expert Panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 28 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign the grades to more than 2,600 U.S. hospitals twice per year. The Hospital Safety Grade’s methodology is peer-reviewed and fully transparent, and the results are free to the public.

“Receiving the A grade for patient safety is an honor shared by our entire hospital,” Martin Tursky, MCM President and CEO said. “We are proud of this accomplishment and continue our commitment to provide the safest and highest quality healthcare to the community we serve.”
