Nineteen Kaiser Permanente Hospitals Named ‘Top Hospitals’ by The Leapfrog Group

Nineteen Kaiser Permanente hospitals have been named 2013 “Top Hospitals” by The Leapfrog Group, an honor that rewards medical centers for their outstanding success in areas such as reducing infection rates, safety practices, mortality rates for common procedures and measures of efficiency.

The 19 Kaiser Permanente hospitals represent approximately one out of every three on Leapfrog’s list of top urban medical centers. Out of nearly 1,100 urban hospitals that completed the Leapfrog survey and were considered for the award, only 55 were named “Top Hospitals.”
