FORT CAVAZOS, Texas – The Leapfrog Group, an independent, nationwide non-profit that seeks to improve the safety and quality of U.S. health care, awarded the Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center an ‘A’ grade for its commitment to providing quality and safe care.
 
The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is the only hospital ratings program focused exclusively on preventable medical errors, infections, and injuries. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public.
