Phoenix Children's earns a top hospital designation from advocacy group

PHOENIX -- Phoenix Children's Hospital has been named a top performer for quality of medical care by Leapfrog Group, a national hospital safety advocacy group.

The hospital was one of 13 children's hospitals to make the list. More than 1,300 hospitals were included.

The announcement was made Tuesday at Leapfrog's headquarters in Arlington, Va. The annual survey assesses hospital performance based on how patients fare, resource use and management procedures to prevent errors. The results are then posted online.

"We're proud to be awarded this prestigious honor, and count it as a privilege to be able to offer Arizona children consistent, excellent high quality care and patient safety," said Bob Meyer, president and CEO of the hospital, in a press release.

Phoenix Children's scored for high quality in preventing medication errors, intensive-care unit physician staffing and safe practices.
