Top Teaching Hospital 2016

At Rush Copley, there’s a culture dedicated to excelling in patient safety. This year, our strong commitment earned the medical center top honors for safety from The Leapfrog Group, an independent national hospital watchdog organization. In fact, Rush Copley is one of only three Illinois teaching hospitals—and one of 10 in the state—to be named a Top Hospital. This elite national distinction is given to hospitals with the highest quality in the nation.These hospitals demonstrate exceptional performance across significant areas of care including safety, surgical outcomes, maternity care and leadership. Data is gathered and publicly reported through the Leapfrog Hospital Survey.

What does this mean for you? Simple. It means you can have even greater confidence in your care.

Rush Copley is the only hospital in the greater Fox Valley area to have earned "Straight As” since 2012 when the Leapfrog scores were first published.
