Jupiter Medical Center Earns "Top Hospital" Distinction in Rigorous Evaluation by National Patient Safety Organization

Just after achieving its seventh consecutive “A” Hospital Safety Grade, Jupiter Medical Center is the only hospital in South Florida recognized with a “Top Hospital” award by nationally respected patient safety organization, the Leapfrog Group—a distinction reserved for only the “best of the best” hospitals across the country committed to the highest standards of patient safety.

JUPITER, Fla. (December 7, 2021) – Jupiter Medical Center’s commitment to patient safety has again been recognized by the watchdog organization widely acknowledged as defining the toughest standards in hospital safety and quality.

National nonprofit, the Leapfrog Group, has recognized Jupiter Medical Center with its Top Hospital Award, one of the most competitive distinctions that hospitals can receive. Only 46 hospitals in the nation have been designated as Top Hospitals. This award comes just three weeks after Jupiter Medical Center earned its seventh consecutive Leapfrog “A” Hospital Safety Grade for achieving the highest standards in safety. Jupiter Medical Center was the only hospital in the region awarded with seven consecutive “A” grades.

“The Hippocratic principle of ‘First, do no harm,’ is a critical component of our hospital’s commitment to the highest standards of patient safety,” says Dr. Amit Rastogi, President and CEO of Jupiter Medical Center. “We are not only honored by the recognition of this achievement, but the award assures those in our community who are deciding where to seek medical care that their safety is a top priority of all our physicians, nurses and support teams.”

More than 2,200 hospitals throughout the U.S. were considered for the award in the categories of Top Children’s Hospital, General, Rural or Teaching. Jupiter Medical Center was one of just 46 hospitals in the nation named a Top Hospital in the General category. The quality of patient care across many measures of hospital performance is considered in establishing the qualifications for the award, including infection rates, surgery, maternity care, and the hospital’s ability to prevent errors in medication and other areas.
