Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital Named to Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Hospital Honor Roll
Hospital Compare is a tool for comparing hospitals on clinical quality that was developed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Leapfrog compares hospitals on how well they are complying with recommended standards for protecting patient safety.
To be named to the 2013 Honor Roll, hospitals were required to meet at least four out of six care categories of cardiac, pneumonia, HAI and surgeries. The hospital must achieve at least the top national 25th percentile for individual categories, and five of eight Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems questions at or above the national average.
