Mid Coast Hospital Upholds Straight A’s in Patient Safety

October 30, 2015

The Leapfrog Group, an independent nonprofit organization representing employers and purchasers of health care, has once again honored Mid Coast Hospital with an “A” Hospital Safety Score. Mid Coast has received an A rating each of the seven times the Hospital Safety Score has been released since the spring of 2012. 

“At Mid Coast Hospital, we work tirelessly to provide the highest quality healthcare to the patients and communities we serve,” said Barbara McCue, RN, Director of Quality & Patient Safety. “Caring for our patients and meeting the healthcare needs of the community means continuously looking for ways we can improve everything we do. Indicators such as The Leapfrog Group allow us to identify areas to focus on.”

The Hospital Safety Score uses 26 measures to produce a single score representing a hospital’s overall capacity to keep patients safe. Mid Coast Hospital is one of 11 Maine hospitals that received an A.

“The Leapfrog Group is one of many organizations respected for its commitment to improving healthcare. We are pleased to be recognized in the good company of ten other Maine Hospitals, which have also earned an "A" in patient safety,” said McCue.
