MCGHealth Children’s Medical Center has once again gained top marks for quality and safety from a national consortium that earn it a place in the top 10 percent of 110 centers across the country.

The quarterly rankings are based on 11 provider-level indicators defined by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality as providing a measure of potentially preventable complications of care within the same hospitalization.
These measures include:
• Accidental puncture or laceration
• Pediatric heart surgery mortality
• Postoperative sepsis
• Pressure ulcer
• Selected infections due to medical care

The report and grading comes from the University HealthSystem Consortium, a group of academic medical training centers across the country. “This bench-marking institution allows academic training facilities like ours to compare results nationally,” explains Dr. Dennis Murray, associate medical director for performance improvement at the Medical College of Georgia.
