Miller Children’s Hospital Named to Leapfrog 2007 Top Hospitals List
Only Eight Children’s Hospital in Nation; Two From California Make the List
(Long Beach, Calif.)—Sept. 27—Miller Children’s Hospital in Long Beach, Calif., was one of eight children’s hospitals named to the 2007 Leapfrog Top Hospitals list—only Miller Children’s, and three other children’s hospitals, made both the 2006 and 2007 lists. The listing is based on recently released results from the Leapfrog Hospital Quality and Safety Survey, a national rating system that provides an up-to-the-minute assessment of a hospital's quality and safety.
The Survey results from more than 1,285 adult and children’s hospitals that responded to the Leapfrog Hospital Quality and Safety Survey as of Aug. 31. Only eight children’s hospitals, who responded to the survey, fully met the standards for these three criteria:
Since Leapfrog added new measures to the 2007 survey and made necessary modifications to the Top Hospitals criteria, some of last year’s Top Hospitals did not satisfy this year’s criteria. The complete 2007 list and detailed explanation of the Top Hospitals methodology and the differences between the 2006 and 2007 lists can be found at www.leapfroggroup.org.
