Delta County Memorial Hospital has been honored with an "A" hospital safety score by The Leapfrog Group, an independent national non-profit run by employers and other large purchasers of health benefits for the second year in a row. DCMH is the only hospital in the region to receive an "A."
The A, B, C, D or F scores assigned to U.S. hospitals is based upon preventable medical errors, injuries, accidents and infections. The hospital safety score was completed 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.
"Delta County Memorial Hospital is very proud of being awarded an 'A' from The Leapfrog Group for two years running. The safety score demonstrates our level of commitment and service to our patients and Delta County families," stated CEO Jason Clecker.
