In recognition of the nation’s highest quality hospitals, The Leapfrog Group, an independent nonprofit hospital watchdog organization, announced the recipients of its 2017 Top Hospitals award. This year, New Jersey, California, Florida and Massachusetts had strong showings, with 10 or more hospitals in each of those states receiving the elite distinction. Performance across many areas of hospital care, such as preventing infections, reducing C-sections, use of technology to ensure safer care, and leadership policies and practices, is considered for the competitive award.
