Quality and Patient Safety

The safety of our patients, and our ability to deliver the highest quality health care, are our top priorities.

Every member of our team, from our environmental services staff and our physicians to our nurses and our food and nutrition teams, is committed to safe, effective care for our patients.

YOU are the reason we work so hard to provide the highest quality care, but we are honored to have this work recognized with a number of national awards and designations, including:

  • Prestigious “5 star” designation from CMS, the highest possible rating, reflecting how well a hospital performs across different areas of quality, such as treating heart attacks and pneumonia, readmission rates, and safety of care
  • Michigan’s #1 Hospital, the only Michigan hospital awarded “Honor Roll” distinction by U.S. News & World Report
  • 10 consecutive years of “straight A’s” for patient safety from Leapfrog
  • Magnet designation, nursing’s highest honor, recognizing less than 10% of all hospitals in the nation for rigorous standards for quality patient care and nursing excellence panel of designation marks

Because of our reputation for health care quality and safety, Michigan Medicine has been asked to lead and participate in many quality and safety programs in the state of Michigan and across the U.S. These programs have resulted in dramatic, positive results.
