Highlighting its nationally recognized achievements in patient safety and quality, Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill, part of Inspira Health, was named a Top Teaching Hospital nationally by The Leapfrog Group. Announced today, the Leapfrog Top Hospital award is widely acknowledged as one of the most competitive awards American hospitals can receive. The Top Hospital designation is bestowed by The Leapfrog Group, a national watchdog organization of employers and other purchasers recognized as the toughest standard-setters for health care safety and quality.

“This recognition as a Top Hospital by Leapfrog is a true testament to the dedication and skills of our entire network and their unwavering commitment to our patients and the community,” said Amy Mansue, president and CEO of Inspira Health. “At Inspira, our teams have created a strong culture that’s focused on providing safe, high-quality care and we are very proud that Inspira Mullica Hill has achieved this honor.”

Over 2,200 hospitals were considered for the award. Among those, Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill received a Top Teaching Hospital distinction. A total of 149 top hospitals nationwide were selected as Top Hospitals, including:

  • 8       Top Children’s Hospitals
  • 46     Top General Hospitals
  • 23     Top Rural Hospitals
  • 72     Top Teaching Hospitals

Inspira’s residency and fellowship programs offer one-of-a-kind educational opportunities for young physicians to receive real-world training by working side-by-side with highly skilled and experienced members of Inspira’s medical staff. This year, the health care network introduced new residency programs in Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, and a Transitional (1-year multispecialty) Internship. Inspira now trains 201 physicians in 13 nationally accredited programs across its three hospitals. That number will grow to more than 250 as the new 3-year programs reach capacity in 2023, making Inspira Health one of New Jersey’s largest and fastest growing programs for physician training.

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

“We are pleased to recognize Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill as a Top Hospital this year,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “Even with the continued strain of the COVID-19 pandemic, Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill has demonstrated an extraordinary dedication to excellent health care in the South Jersey community. We congratulate the board, leadership, staff and clinicians who put their patients first.”

To qualify for the Top Hospitals distinction, hospitals must rank top among peers on the Leapfrog Hospital Survey, which assesses hospital performance on the highest standards for quality and patient safety.
