December 7, 2021 — Englewood Health was named a Top Teaching Hospital nationally by The Leapfrog Group, a national watchdog organization dedicated to healthcare quality and safety. The Leapfrog Top Hospital award is widely acknowledged as one of the most competitive awards American hospitals can receive. Englewood Health is one of only 72 hospitals in the country, out of 2,200 considered, to receive the 2021 Top Teaching Hospital distinction.
“We are so excited to be recognized as a 2021 Top Hospital nationally,” says Warren Geller, president and CEO of Englewood Health. “To be among the top teaching hospitals is a testament to the commitment to safety and high-quality care from all members of our team, including trustees, physicians, leaders, and staff at all levels. I applaud and appreciate our team’s unwavering dedication to our patients and our communities.”
Englewood Health’s distinction as a Top Hospital follows its recent achievement of an “A” Hospital Safety Grade, also from The Leapfrog Group. This is the 17th “A” Hospital Safety Grade for Englewood Health since 2012.
“We are pleased to recognize Englewood Health as a Top Hospital this year,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “Even with the continued strain of the COVID-19 pandemic, Englewood Health has demonstrated an extraordinary dedication to excellent health care in the northern New Jersey community. We congratulate the board, leadership, staff and clinicians who put their patients first.”
To qualify for the Top Hospitals distinction, hospitals must rank top among peers on the Leapfrog Hospital Survey, which assesses hospital performance on the highest standards for quality and patient safety. The rigorous standards are defined in each year’s Top Hospital Methodology.
