The Leapfrog Group Identifies Nation's 'Highest Value' Hospitals
Date:12/11/2008

  • Mercy General Health Partners (Sherman Campus), Muskegon, Michigan
  • St. Clare's Hospital Of Weston Inc, Weston, Wisconsin
  • The hospitals were deemed "highest value" based on their efficiency scores -- a combination of their quality and resource utilization scores -- for coronary artery bypass graft (CABG), percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI), treatment of acute myocardial infarction (AMI), and pneumonia care. To make Leapfrog's Highest Value list, a hospital had to have a top efficiency of care score for at least three of these four procedures and conditions. Resource use was measured by the hospital's severity-adjusted average length of stay for that procedure, inflated by the readmission rate. Quality scores are based on meeting appropriate processes of care measures, and (for CABG and PCI) hospital volume and risk-adjusted mortality.

    Earlier this year 26 hospitals and seven children's hospitals were named 2008 Top Hospitals, based on results of the voluntary Leapfrog Hospital Survey. The survey is the nation's premier hospital patient safety evaluation tool and provides consumers and health care purchasers with up-to-date assessments of participating hospitals' quality and safety at its Web site, www.leapfroggroup.org.

    Leapfrog Highest Value Hospital Awards will be presented at the Leapfrog Annual Meeting, Palomar Hotel, Washington, DC, December 12, 2008. Media are invited to the awards presentation to take place at the breakfast, 8:30-10 AM. The award is sponsored by CIGNA, Aetna, United Healthcare and Boehringer-Ingelheim.
