Recognition

A Commitment to Excellence

Our dedication to outstanding health care has earned many accolades, including:

Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade (A)

The Leapfrog Group

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade provides data and research to help you make informed decisions about a critical aspect of your hospital stay – safety. A hospital may have the best surgeons and greatest technology in the world, but unless it is preventing infections and eliminating errors, it is not delivering on a basic premise: ensuring the safety of patients and their loved ones.
