Putting Patient Safety First
Leapfrog Patient Safety Ratings
The Leapfrog Group is a voluntary program aimed at mobilizing employer purchasing power to alert America's health industry that big leaps in health care safety, quality and customer value will be recognized and rewarded. Among other initiatives, Leapfrog works with its employer members to encourage transparency and easy access to health care information as well as rewards for hospitals that have a proven record of high quality care.
The Leapfrog Group conducts an annual voluntary survey to determine which hospitals are leading the country in these areas. In 2014, California Pacific (California & Pacific Campus) have been again chosen as Leapfrog "Top Urban Hospital". 59 hospitals across the nation are on the 2014 Top Urban Hospitals list.
