Carney earns ‘top teaching hospital’ ranking

Carney Hospital has once again been named a “top teaching hospital” by The Leapfrog Group, national watchdog organization of employers and other purchasers focused on health care safety and quality. The award comes following the hospital’s “A” Hospital Safety Grade, also from The Leapfrog Group. 

“Carney Hospital is proud to be recognized by The Leapfrog Group for two distinct and prestigious awards.” said Tom Sands, president of Carney Hospital. “The Top Hospital and Grade “A” recognitions further demonstrate Carney’s dedication to providing safe, quality care to our patients.”  

About 2,100 hospitals were considered for the award. Among those, Carney Hospital received a Top Teaching Hospital distinction.

“We are pleased to recognize Carney Hospital as a 2019 Leapfrog Top Hospital,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “This demonstrates extraordinary dedication to patients and to the Dorchester community. We congratulate the board, staff and clinicians whose efforts made this honor possible and know they share pride in this achievement.”

To qualify for the Top Hospitals distinction, hospitals must rank top among peers in the 2019 Leapfrog Hospital Survey, which assesses hospital performance on the highest known standards for quality and patient safety, and achieve top performance in its category.
