Hackensack Meridian Riverview Medical Center was once again named a top general hospital by the prestigious Leapfrog Group.
The highest performing hospitals on the Leapfrog Hospital Survey are recognized annually with the prestigious Leapfrog Top Hospital award. Top Hospitals have better systems in place to prevent medication errors, higher quality on maternity care and lower infection rates, among other laudable qualities. Hospitals that are eligible to receive a Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade must have received an A in the most recent round of scoring to be eligible.
“Riverview Medical Center has consistently proven that we are not just a trusted name here in the Two River community but across the State of New Jersey” said Kelli O’Brien, chief hospital executive, Riverview Medical Center. “The care and safety of our patients and their families is second to none and the work of our team members to improve each day is unparalleled. This recognition is a reflection of every individual that works here at the hospital.”
The Leapfrog Group is a national nonprofit organization driving a movement for giant leaps forward in the quality and safety of American health care. The flagship Leapfrog Hospital Survey collects and transparently reports hospital performance, empowering purchasers to find the highest-value care and giving consumers the lifesaving information, they need to make informed decisions. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade, Leapfrog’s other main initiative, assigns letter grades to hospitals based on their record of patient safety, helping consumers protect themselves and their families from errors, injuries, accidents, and infections.
“Our commitment to providing the community with the best healthcare possible is why we have received this prestigious award for eight consecutive years, O’Brien said. “We have been providing quality care for nearly a century and we will continue to keep getting better!”
