Kingman Regional Medical Center received an “A” Hospital Safety Grade from The Leapfrog Group. KRMC is one of only five hospitals in the state of Arizona to receive an ‘A’ for the fall 2022 safety rating. This national distinction celebrates KRMC’s achievements in protecting hospital patients from preventable harm and errors.
“Every person at KRMC plays a role in the quality of care we provide our patients, and it is gratifying when the results of that hard work are recognized,” said Roger Forgey, KRMC’s interim CEO. “This news is especially good for our patients who entrust us with their care. They can come to KRMC knowing we are one of the safest hospitals in the country.”
The Leapfrog Group is an independent national watchdog organization with a 10-year history of
assigning letter grades to general hospitals throughout the United States, based on a hospital’s ability to
prevent medical errors and harm to patients. The grading system is peer-reviewed, fully transparent, and free to the public. Hospital Safety Grade results are based on more than 30 national performance measures and are updated each fall and spring.
“I applaud the hospital leadership and workforce for their strong commitment to safety and
transparency,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “An ‘A’ Safety Grade is a sign
that hospitals are continuously evaluating their performance, so that they can best protect patients. The KRMC team should be extremely proud of their dedication and achievement.”
