Nationwide Children’s Hospital Earns Coveted 2016 Leapfrog Top Hospital Award
The Leapfrog Group announced that Nationwide Children’s has been named a Top Hospital. Widely acknowledged as one of the most prestigious distinctions a hospital can receive in the U.S., the recognition showcases Nationwide Children’s commitment to patient safety and quality. Nationwide Children’s received a Top Children’s Hospital distinction as one of only nine children’s hospitals, and was one of 115 Top Hospitals recognized across the country. The selection of Top Hospitals is based on the results of the 2016 Leapfrog Hospital Survey. Performance across many areas of hospital care is considered in establishing the qualifications for the award, including infection rates, maternity care, and a hospital’s ability to prevent medication errors. Read the news release.

Congratulations to Jennifer Kusma, MD, who has been elected to the position of Executive Coordinator of Child Health for 2016-2017 for the American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Pediatric Trainees.
