Here Are The DFW Facilities Named To Leapfrog’s Top Hospitals List


The Leapfrog Group on Wednesday released its list of America’s Top Hospitals awarding the best in rural, urban, and children’s care.

This year, 98 made the list, up from 94 last year and 90 in 2013. Texas counted three urban hospitals among the group, two rural, and three children’s. And of those, two of the three city hospitals are in North Texas and two of the three pediatric facilities are here. The selections came from a total of about 1,600 hospitals that voluntarily provided quality data to the third party Leapfrog Group. Head here to learn more about the metrics considered. Texas had eight total hospitals make the list, far below California’s 23.

Below are the hospitals in our region that made the list. (Baylor Scott & White’s Llano hospital also was named one of the best rural facilities.)
