High infection rates have caused three Detroit hospitals to lose some Medicare funding.
The Detroit News reports Wednesday that Harper University Hospital, Detroit Receiving and Sinai-Grace were docked 1 percent due to rankings by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
The hospitals are part of the Detroit Medical Center and among 20 in Michigan to lose part of their funding this year.
Hospitals scoring higher than 6.75 lost funding. Sinai-Grace scored an 8.5. Harper's score was 8.25, while Detroit Receiving had 7.7.
The newspaper says the scores were created by comparing rates of hospital-acquired infections and other conditions associated with health care.
DMC spokeswoman Melanie Moss says the system continues to "work toward a goal of zero preventable conditions."
A hospital in Carson City, Michigan, scored 10.
