Children's National is proud to have been recognized as a Top Children's Hospital 10 times and has received this distinction the most out of any other pediatric hospital since 2007.

"We're particularly proud of this acknowledgment as it recognizes our unwavering commitment to high-quality patient care", says Kurt Newman, M.D.

Highlighting its nationally recognized achievements in patient safety and quality, UC San Diego Medical Center in Hillcrest was named a "Top Teaching Hospital" by The Leapfrog Group. The designation is awarded by The Leapfrog Group, an independent hospital watchdog organization.

Two hospitals in MI received the Top Rural Hospital award: OSF St. Francis Hospital in Escanaba and Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial in Fremont. Virginia Mason is the only medical center in the United States to receive the award every year since the recognition program began in 2006.

The Top Hospital Award comes following the hospital's "A" Hospital Safety Grade, also from The Leapfrog Group.

"Congratulations to Henry Ford Health System on having three hospitals earn this prestigious award and to Michigan Medicine for being a Top Hospital for a fifth time since 2010", said Bret Jackson, president of the Economic Alliance, which is Leapfrog's partner in Michigan. "I congratulate the board, staff and clinicians, whose efforts made this honor possible". "We are honored to be recognized alongside so many distinguished facilities".
