Las Palmas Medical Center nationally recognized for earning “A” rating in Spring 2022 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades

Las Palmas Medical Center was recently awarded an “A” from The Leapfrog Group’s Spring 2022 Hospital Safety Grades.

This national distinction recognizes hospitals’ efforts to provide safer healthcare and protect patients from harm. Las Palmas Medical Center is the only hospital in El Paso to have received an “A” rating from The Leapfrog Group this spring, and the only El Paso hospital to have received an “A” rating from The Leapfrog Group for four consecutive years.


The Leapfrog Group is an independent, national nonprofit organization committed to improving healthcare quality and safety for patients. The Hospital Safety Grade assigns a letter grade to thousands of hospitals across the country every six months based on their performance in preventing medical errors, injuries, accidents and infections among patients in their care.


“At Las Palmas Medical Center, patient care and safety are our top priorities. It is an honor to be recognized by a national group for our ongoing efforts to provide the highest level of care to El Pasoans,” Don Karl, chief executive officer of Las Palmas Medical Center, said. “We are grateful for our heroic healthcare workers at Las Palmas Medical Center and their dedication to providing safe, high-quality healthcare for our patients, especially throughout the COVID-19 pandemic over the last two years.”


The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade was developed under the guidance of a national expert panel that uses up to 30 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to nearly 3,000 U.S. acute-care hospitals twice per year. The Hospital Safety Grade’s methodology is peer-reviewed and fully transparent, and the results are free to the public.
