The awards were presented at NEBGH’s second annual Leapfrog Hospital Awards Breakfast: Bronx Lebanon Hospital Center and Harlem Hospital Center each received the Excellence in Patient Safety and Quality Award; Stamford Hospital in Stamford, Connecticut received the Greatest Leaps in Patient Safety and Quality Award.
The awards were based on a combination of factors including the hospitals’ Leapfrog survey results and Safety Score. This information is publicly reported at www.leapfroggroup.org.
“I commend these hospitals for their deep commitment to transparency, and for ensuring high-quality, safe care for their patients,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “We are proud to stand with the Northeast Business Group on Health as a key advocate for transparency in the New York metro area and Connecticut, and urge all hospitals to match these top performers in their pursuit of radical quality improvement and value-driven care.”
