4. Sturdy Memorial Hospital awarded distinction as 2012 Leapfrog Top Hospital
The Leapfrog Group’s annual list of Top Hospitals was announced recently and included Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro. The announcement came at Leapfrog’s Annual Meeting, focusing on transparency as the key to improved hospital safety and Top Hospital Awards. Sturdy Memorial was selected as a Top Hospital out of nearly 1,200 hospitals participating in The Leapfrog Group’s annual survey. Hospitals reaching this achievement include academic medical centers, teaching hospitals, children’s hospitals, and community hospitals in rural, suburban and urban settings. The selection is based on the results of the Leapfrog Group’s annual hospital survey, which measures hospitals’ performance on patient safety and quality, focusing on three critical areas of hospital care: how patients fare, resource use, and management structures in place to prevent errors. The results of the survey are available at http://www.leapfroggroup.org/cp.
