AMITA Health Adventist Medical Center, GlenOaks Earns 2015 Leapfrog Top Hospital Award

AMITA Health Adventist Medical Center, GlenOaks Earns 2015 Leapfrog Top Hospital Award

Honored with National Distinction for Patient Care

Glendale Heights, IL, December 3, 2015 – For the first time, The Leapfrog Group has named AMITA Health Adventist Medical Center, GlenOaks to its annual list of Top Hospitals. This coveted and respected recognition showcases AMITA Health GlenOaks’ commitment to Leapfrog’s vision of providing the safest, highest quality health care for consumers and purchasers alike.

“For years, our medical center has implemented best practices and new initiatives aimed at enhancing patient safety,” said Bruce C. Christian, Chief Executive Officer, AMITA Health Adventist Medical Center, GlenOaks. “This achievement is a credit to our physicians, nurses and staff who work each day to ensure the safest, highest quality patient experience.” 

AMITA Health GlenOaks was one of 98 Top Hospitals recognized and selected from hospitals participating in The Leapfrog Group’s annual survey. The list includes:

·         24 Top Rural Hospitals

·         62 Top Urban Hospitals

·         12 Top Children’s Hospitals

The selection is based on the results of The Leapfrog Group’s annual hospital survey, which measures hospitals’ performance on patient safety and quality, focusing on three critical areas of hospital care: how patients fare, resource use and management structures established to prevent errors. Performance across many areas of hospital care is considered in establishing the qualifications for the award, including survival rates for high-risk procedures and a hospital’s ability to prevent medication errors.

“Leapfrog’s Top Hospital award is widely acknowledged as one of the most prestigious distinctions any hospital can achieve in the United States,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “Top Hospitals have lower infection rates, better outcomes, decreased length of stay and fewer readmissions. By achieving Top Hospital status, AMITA Health GlenOaks has proven it prioritizes the safety of its patients, is committed to transparency and provides exemplary care for families and patients in Glendale Heights and the surrounding communities. I congratulate the board, staff, and clinicians of AMITA Health GlenOaks whose efforts achieved these results.”

The Top Hospital award is given to urban, rural and children's hospitals that publicly report their performance through the annual Leapfrog Hospital Survey and meet the high standards defined in each year's Top Hospitals Methodology
