November 30, 2010 at a gala celebration in Washington, DC attended by
more than 350 of the most influential health, healthcare and policy
experts in the country, The Leapfrog Group celebrated 10 years of
triggering giant leaps forward in the safety, quality and affordability
of health care.
U.S. Secretary of Commerce, Gary Locke, represented the Obama Administration, and CMS Administrator, Don Berwick, MD, unable to attend due to a prior commitment, sent greetings and congratulations.
Upshaw Travis, former Chair of the Board of Directors of The Leapfrog
Group and CEO of the Memphis Business Group on Health,
recognized the contributions of former and current Board members,
national expert panel Chairs and members, current and former staff, and,
especially the Regional Roll Outs that work with their hospitals at the
local level to garner survey participation and leap implementation.
the gala, The Leapfrog Group announced the "Top
Hospitals of the Decade". Citing their strong public commitments to and
major achievements in reducing medical errors and other innovations in
patient safety and quality, The University of Maryland Medical Center
(UMMC) in Baltimore and Virginia Mason Medical Center (VMMC) in Seattle
were named “Leapfrog Top Hospitals of the Decade”. UMMC
and VMMC are the only two hospitals in America to consistently perform
in the top ranks of survey responders since Leapfrog began its Top
Hospitals awards program in 2006.
The next day, at The Leapfrog Group 2010 Annual Meeting, Leapfrog announced the 65 hospitals that were included in the 2010 Top Hospital list. Vanderbilt University Hospital
was the only Tennessee hospital to make the list. This
is the largest number of hospitals to achieve the Top Hospital list
since its inception in 2006.
UMMC is definitely proud of their Top Hospital of the Decade designation. Watch their video.
