The Leapfrog Group, a non-profit watchdog organization dedicated to fostering positive change in US healthcare, recently announced their coveted annual Top Hospitals’ list. Surfacide® is proud that 20 hospitals recognized on this important list currently deploy our Helios® UV-C disinfection technology in their facilities.

According to the Leapfrog Group, the ‘Top Hospitals’ list is nationally recognized and widely acknowledged as one of the most competitive awards that hospitals and surgery centers in the US can receive for patient safety and quality. In order to earn a spot on the list, ”hospitals that are eligible to receive a Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade must have received an “A” in the most recent round of scoring to be eligible”. Collectively, 132 hospitals around the country earned the award in various categories as top hospitals for 2023.

“We commend these outstanding hospitals and their leadership for their unwavering commitment to enhancing patient safety and quality,” said Gunner Lyslo, Founder and CEO of Surfacide. “The Leapfrog Top Hospitals List emphasizes the crucial role that environmental and EVS teams play in this process, and we are honored that several hospitals on this list are using Surfacide UVC technology as a strategy in their patient safety protocols.”
