Annual Meeting

Each year, The Leapfrog Group gathers its key stakeholders and constituents for a meeting in December to discuss current topics, issues, and trends in purchasing, benefits, and health care quality.

Thank you to those who attended the 2022 Leapfrog Annual Meeting and Awards Dinner on December 6, 2022. 

The 2022 Leapfrog Annual Meeting and Awards Dinner was on December 6, 2022 in Washington, D.C. This year's theme, “Right NOW: The Urgency of Patient Safety,” focused on the crucial need to address and improve patient safety in America’s health care system TODAY. Hundreds of people are dying every day due to preventable medical errors in hospitals and this must change. The meeting brought together stakeholders from all sides of health care – employers, policymakers, hospital and ASC leaders, patient advocates, and other industry partners – to discuss how we can all take immediate action to prioritize patient safety in American health care. 

During the Leapfrog Awards Dinner, Leapfrog recognized and celebrated the 2022 Leapfrog Top Hospital and Top ASC Award winners. Facilities can download their photos from the event at the following link.
