"Our eighth consecutive A grade is especially significant, placing us among only 126 hospitals nationwide and five in North Carolina that have achieved this track record". "And, that includes ensuring we effectively communicate with our patients, ensuring we are responsive to their needs, and ensuring we provide a safe, quiet and clean environment during their stay with us".

In total, 10 Kaiser Permanente Southern California hospitals have again received "A" grades for their dedication to patient safety. By earning an "A" Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade, Kendall Regional is recognized as being one of the safest hospitals in the United States.

Developed under the guidance of a Blue Ribbon National Expert Panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 27 measures of publicly-available hospital safety data to assign safety grades to more than 2,600 US hospitals twice per year.

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is calculated by top patient safety experts, peer reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. The ratings were bestowed by the Leapfrog Group in its fall 2017 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade.

Founded in 2000 by large employers and other purchasers, The Leapfrog Group is a national nonprofit organization driving a movement for giant leaps forward in the quality and safety of American healthcare. The flagship Leapfrog Hospital Survey collects and transparently reports hospital performance, empowering purchasers to find the highest-value care and giving consumers the lifesaving information they need to make informed decisions. "The work done by our co-workers to earn top grades for quality is critical to our patients and noticed by organizations such as Leapfrog that rank hospitals across the country".

This is not the first time that Harlingen Medical Center's ratings reflect the high quality of healthcare that is being provided to Valley residents at HMC.
