Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt was named a Leapfrog Top Hospital for 2022, earning the designation among a select group of children’s hospitals across the nation.

Monroe Carell was one of only 12 children’s hospitals in the nation and the only one in Tennessee to receive a spot on the 2022 Top Hospital list released in December 2022.

Founded in 2000, The Leapfrog Group is a coalition of public and private purchasers of employee health coverage that works to encourage health care safety, quality and affordability. Leapfrog members provide health benefits to more than 37 million Americans who live in all 50 states.

This is the sixth time that Monroe Carell has made the Top Children’s Hospitals list. Leapfrog has published these unranked lists since 2006.

The breakdown of this year’s list of 115 Top Hospitals is 12 Top Children’s Hospitals; 32 Top General Hospitals; 13 Top Rural Hospitals; and 58 Top Teaching Hospitals.

Children’s hospitals selected as a Leapfrog Top Hospital must meet rigorous quality and safety standards.
