Local Kaiser hospitals make national Leapfrog list
Sacramento Business Journal

Two Kaiser Permanente hospitals in the Sacramento area have been named 2011 Leapfrog Top Hospitals, an honor that rewards medical centers for high-quality care due to success in preventing medical errors, reducing mortality rates for high-risk procedures and other factors. Kaiser medical centers in Roseville and South Sacramento were among 65 hospitals nationwide to receive “Top Hospital” honors in the voluntary quality program. The UC Davis Medical Center made the list in 2010, but not in 2011, though it earned top ratings in 10 out of the 18 indicators.
