Houston Methodist Clear Lake Hospital received an “A” Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for spring 2022. This national distinction recognizes Houston Methodist Clear Lake’s achievements in protecting patients from preventable harm and error in the hospital. 


“Houston Methodist Clear Lake Hospital has consistently received an “A” grade since Spring 2019. This award reflects our commitment to patient safety, as well as our vision to be nationally recognized for superior care and exceptional service.” said Dan Newman, CEO of Houston Methodist Clear Lake Hospital.


The Leapfrog Group, an independent national watchdog organization, assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” grade to general hospitals across the country based on over thirty national performance measures reflecting errors, accidents, injuries and infections, as well as systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm. 


The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program based exclusively on hospital prevention of medical errors and harms to patients. The grading system is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. Grades are updated twice annually, in the fall and spring.


“As our health care system continues to feel the strain of the pandemic, I thank the workforce and leadership of Houston Methodist Clear Lake Hospital for sustained commitment to patient safety, day in and day out,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “An ‘A’ Safety Grade is an outstanding achievement, and one that is not possible without a 24/7 effort by the entire health care workforce to protect patients from harm. This community should be proud.”
