Resolute Health is one of two general hospitals in Texas to receive the recognition among 149 hospitals nationally. The data reflects quality standards in areas of medication safety, infection rates, surgery outcomes and other categories.
“The New Braunfels community deserves the safest care for their loved ones. Our staff members are here to protect our patients and provide high-quality, compassionate care to all who walk through our doors. They take pride in their health care calling,” Resolute Health President Mark Bernard said.
Leah Binder, CEO of the Leapfrog Group, said the 2021 hospitals had an added challenge during the pandemic to meet their criteria.
“American hospitals continue to face unprecedented challenges this year due to the pandemic, and Leapfrog is honored to recognize those that continue to uphold the highest standards of quality and safety with the Top Hospital Award,” Binder said.
The other hospital in Texas to earn the distinction is North Central Baptist Hospital in San Antonio. Both hospitals are part of the Baptist Health System.
