Since 2013, HCM has received an “A” for safety from the Leapfrog Group 10 consecutive times. Twice a year, Leapfrog evaluates more than 2,600 hospitals, and HCM consistently outperforms other hospitals in the Hill Country, Texas and the nation in safety measures.
The Leapfrog Group is a coalition advocating for improved transparency, quality and safety in hospitals. Leapfrog provides information on health care quality so patients can compare hospitals in order to make more informed health care decisions. Leapfrog rankings are based on publicly reported patient safety indicators and a voluntary hospital submission to the Leapfrog Hospital Survey, reporting hospital safety practices.
