Eisenhower Medical Center Earns Coveted 2016 Top Hospital Distinction from The Leapfrog Group
One of Only 25 California Hospitals to Make Prestigious ListThe Leapfrog Group — the nation’s leading quality and safety experts — has selected Eisenhower Medical Center as one of the nation’s Top Hospitals for patient care. This coveted recognition is awarded to hospitals for demonstrating excellence in hospital safety and quality as measured through Leapfrog’s annual Hospital Survey. This year, Eisenhower Medical Center was one of 25 California hospitals, and the only hospital in Riverside County to receive this prestigious distinction.
The awards were announced at Leapfrog’s annual meeting and Top Hospitals awards ceremony held Wednesday, December 6 in Washington, D.C.
“It is a tremendous honor being recognized as a Top Hospital by The Leapfrog Group,” says G. Aubrey Serfling, President and Chief Executive Officer, Eisenhower Medical Center. “Our dedicated physicians, nurses and staff continually work to enhance our patient’s safety and quality of care each and every day. To be honored among the nation’s finest hospitals is a testament to the hard work and commitment of Eisenhower’s compassionate and caring health care team.”
The award follows Eisenhower Medical Center’s “A” score — the highest letter grade available — in Leapfrog’s most recent safety survey, which is conducted twice annually and involves more than 2,500 hospitals.
“We set the toughest standards in the industry, so hospitals that excel at Leapfrog deserve the finest recognition we can give them,” says Leah Binder, President and CEO of The Leapfrog Group.
The Leapfrog Hospital Survey compares hospitals’ performance on national standards of patient safety, quality, efficiency and management structures that prevent errors, providing the most comprehensive picture of how patients fare at individual institutions. The data collected also enables hospitals to benchmark their progress towards Leapfrog’s standards and measure the care they deliver.
