Which 10 states have the highest percentage of Leapfrog A hospitals?

The Leapfrog Group released its spring 2016 Hospital Safety Scores Monday, and 798 hospitals earned a coveted A grade from the watchdog organization.

Leapfrog assigns A through F letter grades to more than 2,500 U.S. hospitals each spring and fall. The peer-reviewed grades are calculated by patient safety experts and are based on patient safety, infection and patient experience scores.

In fall 2015, Maine had the highest percentage of A hospitals of any state, but the state was dethroned this spring by its New England neighbor, Vermont.

Here are the 10 states in which the highest percentage of hospitals earned an A grade from Leapfrog this spring.

1. Vermont — 83.3 percent of hospitals in the state earned an A grade

2. Maine — 62.5 percent

2. Rhode Island — 62.5 percent

4. Massachusetts — 62.1 percent

5. Minnesota — 55.3 percent

6. Idaho — 54.2 percent

7. Wisconsin — 54.2 percent

8. Nebraska — 53.3 percent

9. South Dakota — 50 percent

10. North Carolina — 48.8 percent
