CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL EARNS TOP HONOR

Lee Health’s Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida has been named a Top Children’s Hospital by The Leapfrog Group, for the second year in a row.

Only 10 children’s hospitals in the country earned the distinction. This highlights each hospital’s highest commitment to safety and quality care of children.

Hospitals are selected based on the results of the 2017 Leapfrog Hospital Survey. The annual survey assesses performance across many areas of hospital care. These include inpatient care management, medication safety, and infections and injuries.

Only four Florida hospitals made the list, which can be viewed here.
