Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus Recognized as Top Children’s Hospital by The Leapfrog Group
Date:12/9/2013

Houston, TX (PRWEB) December 09, 2013

Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus has been selected as a 2013 Top Children’s Hospital by the Leapfrog Group, an organization that provides the only national, public comparison of hospitals across safety, quality and efficiency dimensions. Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus is honored among an elite group of only 13 children’s hospitals selected out of more than 1,300 rural, urban and children’s hospital surveyed, and the only children’s hospital in Texas to be recognized with this prestigious distinction. For more information about Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus, visit texaschildrens.org/westcampus.

“It is an honor to be recognized as a top performing children’s hospital,” said Michelle Riley-Brown, senior vice president, Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus. “We are continually striving to provide high quality care for our patients and families while keeping their safety our top priority.”

This year’s list includes 22 Top Rural Hospitals, 55 Top Urban Hospitals and 13 Top Children’s Hospitals. To be selected as a Top Hospital, organizations must meet or exceed Leapfrog criteria in three critical areas of hospital care: how patients fare, resource use and management structures in place to prevent errors.

The Leapfrog Group was founded to work for improvements in health care safety, quality and affordability. The annual survey is the only voluntary effort of its kind. The Top Hospitals will be honored at Leapfrog’s Annual Meeting on Dec. 3 in Arlington, Virginia, which gathers key decision-makers from Leapfrog’s network of purchaser members, industry partners, health care stakeholders and national collaborators.
