Kaiser Permanente’s Fontana hospital makes “Top Hospital” list

The Leapfrog Group, an organization representing many private and public sector health care purchasers, included Kaiser Permanente’s medical centers in Fontana and Riverside on its “Top Hospital” list.

No other Inland Empire hospitals made the list.

Leapfrog Group named 65 U.S. hospitals to the list. Making the list signifies that Leapfrog observed low incidences of medical errors, reduced mortality for high-risk procedures and reduced readmissions.

A total of 17 Kaiser Permanente facilities up and down California made the list.
