NEW JERSEY – If you’ve ever visited Jersey City Medical Center, Saint Barnabas Medical Center, or Monmouth Medical Center, you might not be surprised that these three RWJBarnabas Health facilities have recently been ranked as Top Teaching Hospitals of 2017 by The Leapfrog Group! Honored for their commitment to patient safety and quality of care, these three hospitals have received one of the highest honors a hospital can receive.
“The Top Hospital recognition is a testament to the tremendous team efforts of our entire staff, who work together to deliver our patients premier care,” said Joseph Scott, FACHE, Executive Vice President for RWJBarnabas Health and President and CEO for Jersey City Medical Center.
Jersey City Medical Center, Saint Barnabas Medical Center, and Monmouth Medical Center were chosen among 36 top ranked hospitals nationally, and out of only nine hospitals in New Jersey, to receive this title.
“We are pleased to be honored with the distinction of Top Hospital for the fourth consecutive year here at Saint Barnabas Medical Center,” said Stephen P. Zieniewicz, FACHE, President and CEO of Saint Barnabas Medical Center.
Aspects of care including infection rates, maternity care, and error prevention are all considered in the award decision. The strict standards are outlined by Top Hospital Methodology each year. It is important that performance be observed throughout various areas of the hospital to consider a hospital’s qualification.
“Monmouth Medical Center’s reputation as a university-level medical center attracts the best physicians to our Medical staff. And our resident physicians and medical students are an integral part of this collaborative approach to safety and quality,” said Bill Arnold, President and CEO of Monmouth Medical Center.
Leah Binder, President and CEO of Leapfrog said that these three hospitals demonstrate extraordinary dedication to both patients and the local community and they deserve great praise for that.
