Money.com published its inaugural list of the best hospitals in the country in partnership with the Leapfrog Group, a healthcare nonprofit that has been vetting hospitals for more than 20 years.
The list is designed to spotlight the facilities that consistently deliver the safest, highest-value care for patients. Leapfrog Group used data from its flagship Leapfrog Hospitals Survey, its Hospital Safety Grade assessment and public data sources. Leapfrog evaluates hospitals on a wide range of criteria, from ICU staffing to outcomes for high-risk surgeries to maternity care.
The result is a list of 148 hospitals in five categories (general hospitals, children’s hospitals, rural hospitals, large teaching hospitals and small teaching hospitals) that spans 29 states.
