The Leapfrog Group announced its annual list of top-performing hospitals in 2010 at its 10th anniversary meeting in Washington on December 1st. The awards were given based on results from The Leapfrog Group’s national survey, which focuses on essential areas of quality and patient safety. Areas include resources used to care for patients, how patients fare, protocols and policies to reduce medical errors, and progress in preventing infections and other hospital-acquired conditions.

This year’s list featured the largest number of honoraries—65—since the award’s inception in 2001. The Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix, California Pacific Medical Center in Davies Campus, CA, and Kaiser Permanente Riverside Medical Center in CA, were included in the list of winners.  The University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore and Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle, both of which were named the “Top Hospitals of the Decade” by The Leapfrog Group, were also honored.
