Dr. Jonathan Gottlieb, Chief Medical Officer at University of Maryland Medical Center, talks about why UMMC is proud to be one of The Leapfrog Group's Top Hospitals for the fourth straight year. It is wonderful to have a major medical center accept the challenge Leapfrog has issued to "trigger giant leaps" in the safety, quality and affordability of health care.
Memphis area hospitals have been national leaders in reporting to The Leapfrog Group's annual Hospital Survey and we have seen progress in the adoption of computerized provider order entry and in staffing intensive care units with physicians trained in critical care medicine. But we still have a long way to go to have a hospital included in Leapfrog's Top Hospital list.
MBGH is challenging Memphis-area hosptials to have at least one hospital on this list in 2011. Let's see which hospital(s) step up and accept the challenge!!
