NOLA-area Hospitals Ranked by Healthcare Nonprofit

Research data unveiled by the healthcare watchdog group LeapFrog provides a glimpse into how well the New Orleans area's hospitals stack up against each other and against others nationwide. The nonprofit organization gives hospitals a simple letter grade for overall quality, safety, and efficiency, as well as more specific breakdowns for individual areas.

The highest-rated hospital in the New Orleans area-and the only area hospital to receive an overall 'A' grade-is Slidell Memorial Hospital. Leapfrog gives Slidell Memorial the highest possible grades for doctor care for ICU patients, managing serious errors, maternity care standard precautions, length of stay for common acute conditions, and taking steps to avoid harm.

Leapfrog's ratings for other New Orleans-area hospitals are:

East Jefferson General Hospital - B

Ochsner - Kenner - B

Ochsner - Slidell - B

Tulane Lakeside Hospital - B

West Jefferson Medical Center - B

Lakeview Regional Medical Center - C

Ochsner - Main Campus - C

Ochsner - Gretna - C

St. Tammany Parish Hospital - C

Touro - C

Tulane Medical Center - C

University Medical Center - C

Unlike other hospital rankings such as the US World & News Best Hospitals report, Leapfrog relies on data self-reported by medical clinics. US World & News provides more comprehensive evaluations, grading clinics by practice area. For example, Slidell Memorial Hospital receives a score of 16.1 out of a possible 100 in the area of Neurology and Neurosurgery, as compared to Ochsner, which receives a 62.5/100 for the same specialty.

These medical provider reviews are an invaluable resource for patients and consumers everywhere, empowering us to make the most informed decisions about our healthcare. They are available for free online, and links to local hospital ratings are available at the links below:
