Virginia Mason a 2013 Top Hospital by The Leapfrog Group

Published on December 3, 2013 at 12:35 PM · No Comments

For 2013, Virginia Mason is one of only 55 hospitals in the nation - and one of only two in Washington - to meet Leapfrog's criteria for highest performing urban hospitals.

The Top Hospitals list announced today was closely culled from a record number of 1,324 hospitals across the nation voluntarily participating in the Leapfrog Hospital Survey. "The field of hospitals considered for this year's elite distinction was more competitive than ever, proving that more hospitals across the country are making quality their top priority," said Leapfrog President and CEO Leah Binder.

While several agencies and organizations collect and publicize hospital quality data, the Leapfrog Hospital Survey sets the highest bar for comparing hospitals' performance on the national standards of safety, quality and efficiency that are most relevant to consumers and purchasers of care.
