The 109 Leapfrog Top Hospital awardees for 2017

The Leapfrog Group on Thursday named the recipients of its 2017 Top Hospital award, which goes to the hospitals that performed the best on the Leapfrog survey.

The award is not given to a set number of hospitals each year, but to all urban, rural and children's hospitals surveyed by the organization. The hospitals are equipped with better systems to protect patients from adverse events and facilitate higher-quality care, according to Leapfrog.

Here are three things to know.

1. In total, 109 hospitals received the distinction.

2. Forty-five of the awards went to general hospitals, 36 went to teaching hospitals, 18 went to rural hospitals and 10 went to children's hospitals.

3. For 2017, California, Florida, Massachusetts and New Jersey had the most Top Hospitals, with 10 or more awardees in each state.
