FAH Member Facilities Named in Leapfrog Group’s Top Hospitals of 2019

The Leapfrog Group published its 2019 Top Hospitals awards earlier this month and 15 FAH member facilities made the prestigious list.

The FAH member companies represented on the list include Ardent Health Services, HCA Healthcare, Prime Healthcare Services, and Universal Health Services.

The Leapfrog Group does not have a set number of facilities it honors each year. Instead, the group analyzes which hospitals have best prevented medication errors, have higher quality on maternity care and lower infection rates, among other qualities. The list is divided into four categories: general, children’s, rural and teaching hospitals. Leapfrog has released the list every year since 2006. For more information about the list click here.
