57 Checklist Boards Clients Receive an A Rating from Leapfrog Group

The Leapfrog Group last week released its Fall 2017 Hospital Safety Grade ratings, awarding 832 hospitals an "A" rating for excellence in clinical and operational metrics tied to patient safety.
The rise of consumerism in healthcare has put fresh weight on public ratings programs from groups like Leapfrog, Healthgrades, and U.S. News. More patients are conducting research online on the providers they choose for their care.

Still, Leapfrog says its data shows the commitment many hospitals are making to patient safety is growing. In fact, Oregon, Rhode Island, Hawaii, Wisconsin, and Idaho showed the most improvement by having more "A" hospitals in their states compared to prior years. Below is the full list of "A" hospitals for Fall 2017, along with their scores for previous Spring 2017 release.
