Sutter Health Plus Network Hospital Earns 2016 Top Hospital Distinction

Posted by on Dec 21, 2016 in Quality

One hospital in the Sutter Health Plus network has been named a Top Hospital by The Leapfrog Group®. California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco was honored as one of the elite hospitals that demonstrates excellence in safety and quality through the Leapfrog Hospital Survey. The Leapfrog Group awards the Top Hospital recognition to less than three percent of all eligible hospitals.

Performance across many areas of hospital care is considered in establishing the qualifications for the award, including infection rates, maternity care and a hospital’s ability to prevent medication errors. The rigorous standards are defined in each year’s Top Hospital Methodology. To see the complete list of 2016 Top Hospitals, visit www.leapfroggroup.org/tophospitals.
