WEST ORANGE, NJSaint Barnabas Medical Center, Jersey City Medical Center and Monmouth Medical Center, three RWJBarnabas Health facilities, were recently recognized as Top Teaching Hospitals in 2017 by The Leapfrog Group, a national nonprofit organization driving a movement for giant leaps forward in the quality and safety of American health care.

Among thousands of hospitals in the country, Saint Barnabas Medical Center, Jersey City Medical Center and Monmouth Medical Center are three of 36 Top Teaching Hospitals recognized nationally and of only nine hospitals recognized in New Jersey.

“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 Zieniewicz, FACHE, President and CEO of Saint Barnabas Medical Center. “By achieving Top Hospital status, Saint Barnabas Medical Center has proven yet again that it prioritizes the safety of its patients and their families and is committed to delivering exemplary care."

Widely acknowledged as one of the most competitive honors an American hospital can receive, the recognition underscores all three facilities’ commitment to patient safety and quality.

“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. “We are committed to achieving the highest levels of quality in both care and education at Jersey City Medical Center.”

Performance across many areas of hospital care is considered in establishing the qualifications for the award, including infection rates, maternity care, and the hospital’s capacity to prevent medication errors. The rigorous standards are defined in each year’s Top Hospital Methodology.

“This tremendous achievement is a testament to the dedication of our highly skilled physicians, nurses and care teams and their commitment to providing the highest quality patient-centered care in the safest environment,” said Bill Arnold, President and CEO of Monmouth Medical Center. “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.”

Leah Binder, president and CEO of Leapfrog, said the organization was proud to recognize these three facilities, stating that they each demonstrate “extraordinary dedication to patients and the local community.”

“The entire staff and board deserve praise for putting quality first and achieving results,” she said.

To qualify for the Top Hospitals distinction, hospitals must submit a Leapfrog Hospital Survey. The selection of Top Hospitals 2017 is based on surveys from nearly 1,900 hospitals. To see the full list of institutions honored as 2017 Top Hospitals, visit www.leapfroggroup.org/tophospitals.

Don’t Complain; Vote!

It’s no secret that people have strong feelings about what’s happening in our country. It’s also true that much of politics is local. In November, 11th District residents will have the opportunity to choose a new congressional representative who will not only serve as a critical check on the federal level, but also determine how our distract fares ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
