Sutter Health Plus Network Hospital Campuses Earn Awards for Quality

Posted by on Dec 13, 2017 in Network, Quality

Recognized for achievements in patient safety and quality, The Leapfrog Group® named three Sutter Health Plus network hospital campuses as Top Hospitals in 2017. The Leapfrog Top Hospital award is widely acknowledged as one of the most competitive honors American hospitals can receive.

Network hospital campuses named as Top Hospitals in 2017 include:

  • California Pacific Medical Center, California campus in San Francisco
  • Sutter Maternity & Surgery Center of Santa Cruz
  • Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital

Performance across many areas of hospital care is considered in establishing the qualifications for the Top Hospital award, including infection rates, maternity care, and the hospital’s capacity to prevent medication errors. The rigorous standards are defined in each year’s Top Hospital Methodology.

To qualify for the Top Hospitals distinction, hospitals must submit a Leapfrog Hospital Survey. The selection of Top Hospitals 2017 is based on surveys from nearly 1,900 hospitals. To see the full list of institutions honored as 2017 Top Hospitals, visit
