Two mid-Michigan hospitals have been recognized for patient safety.

Covenant Healthcare and MyMichigan Health are recipients of the 2022 Economic Alliance for Michigan Patient Safety Awards, recognizing hospitals in Michigan consistently performing high marks and improvements in patient safety and quality of care.

This marks the seventh year for the awards.

Hospitals can achieve two different awards: the Excellence Award and the Improvement Award.

Covenant and MyMichigan Health both received the Excellence Award.
