Chelsea Hospital Recognized as “Top Teaching Hospital” for Third Consecutive Year


Chelsea Hospital, a joint venture between Trinity Health Michigan and University of Michigan Health, has earned the “Top Teaching Hospital” award from The Leapfrog Group for a third straight year. The Top Teaching Hospital is a category within the Top Hospital award program, which is widely acknowledged as one of the most competitive awards American hospitals can receive.

To qualify for the distinction, hospitals must rank at the top among peers on the Leapfrog Hospital Survey, which assesses hospital performance on the highest standards for quality and patient safety and achieve top performance in their category.
