Medical City McKinney has received the 2017 Patient Safety Excellence Award from Healthgrades, the leading online resource for information about physicians and hospitals. The award recognizes hospitals for their excellent performance in safeguarding patients from serious, potentially preventable complications during their hospital stay.
“The Patient Safety Excellence Award is a validation of the effort we put toward preventing hospital acquired conditions during a patient’s hospital stay,” said Ernest C. Lynch, III, Medical City McKinney CEO. “We are honored to receive this prestigious award.”
Medical City of McKinney was one of 460 hospitals across the nation to achieve this recognition. This distinction places an elite group of hospital recipients within the top 10 percent of all hospitals evaluated for their superior performance in safeguarding patients from serious, potentially preventable complications during their hospital stays.
Patient Safety Excellence Award recipients were determined by evaluating the occurrence of observed incidents and expected performance for 13 Patient Safety Indicators as defined by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
