RUTHERFORD, NJ – Felician University congratulates Bergen New Bridge Medical Center and President Deborah Visconi on being named a ‘Top Hospital’ and ‘Top Teaching Hospital’ nationally by The Leapfrog Group for its achievements in patient safety and quality. This is the third year in a row they have been recognized with these top ratings.

Deborah Visconi, also a Felician University Trustee remarked, “I’m proud of the fact that our Medical Center is one of only 132 hospitals nationwide to be recognized as a Leapfrog Top Hospital and one of only 74 to be recognized as a Top Teaching Hospital.”
