The Leapfrog Group announced the 2022 recipients of its annual Top Hospital Award and Top Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) Award, a national recognition for patient safety and quality in hospitals and ASCs.
This year, 115 hospitals from across the country received the Top Hospital Award. California, Florida, and North Carolina were the states with the most Top Hospitals, with ten or more hospitals in each state receiving the designation. The Top Hospitals are recognized in four categories: Top General Hospitals (32 recipients), Top Rural Hospitals (13 recipients), Top Teaching Hospitals (58 recipients), and Top Children’s Hospitals (12 recipients).
Data from the annual Leapfrog Hospital Survey and Leapfrog ASC Survey were used to identify award winners. The selection was based on excellence in upholding quality standards across several areas of patient care. This includes staffing, hand hygiene, infection rates, practices for safer surgery, maternity care, and error prevention.
Full results of the 2022 Leapfrog Hospital Survey and Leapfrog ASC Survey are publicly reported and available for free on Leapfrog’s website, providing patients with a resource to make informed decisions about where to seek treatment.
