CHOC Children’s Hospital Earns National Distinction for Safe, Quality Care

Did you hear our good news? CHOC Children’s Hospital is one of only 12 children’s hospitals in the nation and only two in the state to be named to the “Leapfrog 2015 Top Hospitals” list. What an honor! This is a reflection of CHOC’s commitment to providing the safest, highest quality health care. 

The selection is based on results of The Leapfrog Group’s annual hospital survey, which measures hospitals’ performance on patient safety and quality, focusing on three critical areas:

  • How patients fare
  • Resource utilization
  • Management structures established to prevent errors

“Leapfrog’s Top Hospital award is widely acknowledged as one of the most prestigious distinctions any hospital can achieve in the United States,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group.  “Top Hospitals have lower infection rates, better outcomes, decreased length of stay and fewer readmissions.  By achieving Top Hospital status, CHOC has proven it prioritizes the safety of its patients, is committed to transparency, and provides exemplary care for children and families in Orange County.  I congratulate the hospital’s board, staff and clinicians whose efforts achieved these results.”
