Osceola Regional Medical Center was recently named one of The Leapfrog Group's 2018 Top Teaching Hospitals. The hospital is one of only four facilities in Florida to receive the award, and the only one in Osceola County. This recognition - which follows the hospital's 'A' grade in The Leapfrog Group's Hospital Safety Score awarded just last month - showcases Osceola Regional's commitment to providing safe, high-quality healthcare.
The selection is based on the results of The Leapfrog Group's annual hospital survey, which measures performance on patient safety and quality, focusing on three critical areas of care: how patients fare, resource use and management structures established to prevent errors. Performance across multiple areas of care is considered for the competitive award, including preventing infections, reducing C-sections, use of technology to prevent errors, surgical quality, and leadership policies and practices.
"Osceola Regional strives to continuously provide top-notch education to the next generation of physicians," said Davide Carbone, CEO of Osceola Regional Medical Center. "This award, coupled with our 'A' grade, validates these efforts and reflects our entire team's dedication to investing in the future of healthcare."
Osceola Regional currently offers 7 Graduate Medical Education residencies and two fellowships as a part of a consortium with University of Central Florida's College of Medicine.
Out of more than 5,500 hospitals, Osceola Regional was one of 53 facilities in the U.S. to receive this prestigious designation, and one of four in the state of Florida. To learn more visit, http://www.leapfroggroup.org/ratings-reports/top-hospitals.
