Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Plymouth has been named a Leapfrog Top Hospital for the first time.

Leapfrog is a national nonprofit group that has created a movement to ensure the quality and safety of American health care.

“The Leapfrog Top Hospital award highlights the highest performing hospitals on the Leapfrog hospital survey, and it’s something they recognize annually,” said BID-Plymouth director of marketing and communications, Chris Smalley.

“We’re just one of 115 hospitals in the United States and just one of two in Massachusetts to receive this award.”

Smalley says the hospital has been recognized quarterly over the past two years with A-ratings from the Leapfrog group.

“What this means for our hospital is that we’ve implemented many systems of the past year-plus to prevent medication errors, provide high quality maternity care, as well as other high risk procedures and to lower readmission rates. And this really highlights the programs that we’ve put into place over the past several years here at the hospital,” said Smalley.

Smalley says that BID-Plymouth strives to provide the safest care possible for their patients and being awarded as a Leapfrog top hospital shines light on their efforts to enhance patient safety and quality through the organization.
