101 best hospitals for bariatric surgery, per Leapfrog and Money

Money and The Leapfrog Group recently published their first shared ranking of the best hospitals for bariatric surgery. 

To be eligible for the inaugural list, released Jan. 30, hospitals had to meet Leapfrog's bariatric surgery and safe surgery checklist standards. Hospitals also had to have a Leapfrog safety grade of B or higher and a standardized infection ratio of less than one for central-line associated bloodstream infections and catheter-associated urinary tract infections.
