A Rochester hospital is on a list of 17 statewide on the annual watch list issued by the nonprofit Niagara Health Quality Coalition -- an organization dedicated to improving health care.
The group's annual report card lists Highland Hospital on the watch list, and lists Rochester General as one of 23 statewide considered among America's safest hospitals.
In Syracuse, University Hospital SUNY Health Science Center made the watch list.
Most other hospitals on both lists are in New York City or its suburbs.
The coalition says it represents the nation’s most cost effective public reporting entity involved in similar reporting for any large state; and claims to be the nation’s most credible.
