Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital is the only Tampa Bay pediatric hospital cited as a top children’s hospital for patient safety and quality on a list released Tuesday by The Leapfrog Group, a national non-profit watchdog organization that collects and publishes information about health care organizations.
This is the first year Johns Hopkins All Children’s has made the list.
Each year, Leapfrog recognizes top achievements in health care safety and quality through some of the toughest standards set at U.S. hospitals. The group considered more than 2,200 hospitals for the honor, but it only designated 149 Top Hospitals nationwide.
“It is an incredible honor to be named a Leapfrog Top Children’s Hospital,” says Angela Green, Ph.D., R.N., CPHQ, FAHA, FAAN, vice president and chief patient safety and quality officer at Johns Hopkins All Children’s. “Even with the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, our amazing team remained laser focused on our mission and our commitment to providing top quality and safe care to children in our community and beyond.”
Selected hospitals rank top among peers on the Leapfrog Hospital Survey, which assesses hospital performance on the highest standards for quality and patient safety. To see the full list of institutions honored as 2021 Top Hospitals, visit LeapfrogGroup.org/TopHospitals.
