Money.com, formerly Money Magazine, will power a series of lists of best hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers in the United States in a new partnership with The Leapfrog Group, an independent national nonprofit watchdog. Founded in 1972, Money provides up-to-date news, educational resources, and tools to help consumers make informed financial decisions, from investing and retirement to health care and insurance.
Money will publish a series of lists of top-rated health care enterprises with a focus on patient safety and quality of care. Lists will be provided by The Leapfrog Group using data from the annual Leapfrog Hospital Survey and Leapfrog Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) Survey and other sources Leapfrog’s experts identify. Money’s editorial staff will then vet Leapfrog’s recommendations and publish lists of top performers nationally across various categories including best hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers, best ethical billing practices, best pediatric care, and best maternity care.
“Health care is one of the largest and most important investments Americans make. The Leapfrog Group is the gold standard for identifying the places where that investment pays off--in better health and saved lives, as well as cost effectiveness,” said Mike Ayers, Executive Editor of Money. “Leapfrog’s deep expertise on quality and patient safety, as well as the independence of their ratings, makes this partnership a unique and valuable resource for all consumers.”
“For decades, Money has helped millions of people live richer lives in the fullest sense. That is why we are very excited to work with their incredible team to help inform their readership of the safest, highest quality places for health care in the United States,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group.
To be considered for Money’s lists, hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers must complete the annual Leapfrog Hospital Survey or Leapfrog ASC Survey by August 31, 2022. To get started, visit www.leapfroggroup.org and contact Leapfrog’s Help Desk.
