Michigan Medicine again earns patient safety recognition

March 13, 2019  //  FOUND IN: News

Congratulations to Michigan Medicine, which recently earned an Excellence Award in patient safety from the Economic Alliance for Michigan (EAM)! It was the fourth straight year the organization received this recognition.

EAM is a nonprofit group comprised of Michigan’s largest employers and unions, and presents these awards during National Patient Safety Awareness Week each year.

Hospitals receiving the Excellence Award consistently receive high marks and demonstrate improvements in patient safety and quality of care. Additionally, they must report to The Leapfrog Group survey for two consecutive years (2017 and 2018) and maintain all “A’s” for their Hospital Safety Grade in four consecutive grading terms (Spring 2017, Fall 2017, Spring 2018, Fall 2018).

Michigan Medicine was one of only eight hospitals across the state to receive the honor.

Thanks for all you do to keep Michigan Medicine among the leaders and best in patient safety!
