Top Hospitals

"It takes leadership, teamwork and absolute dedication to patients , to achieve this award." - Leah Binder, president and CEO.

The highest performing hospitals on the Leapfrog Hospital Survey are recognized annually with the prestigious Leapfrog Top Hospital award. Top Hospitals have better systems in place to prevent medication errors, higher quality on maternity care and lower infection rates, among other laudable qualities. Hospitals that are eligible to receive a Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade must have received an A in the most recent round of scoring to be eligible. 

The award is not given to a set number of hospitals, but rather, to all urban, rural, and children's hospitals that meet the high standards defined in each year's Top Hospital Methodology

Leapfrog congratulates the 2017 Top Hospitals and commends these facilities for their commitment to patient safety and quality!
