Where are Leapfrog's 15 straight-'A' hospitals?

The Leapfrog Group has bestowed 15 U.S. hospitals with consecutive "A" safety grades since 2012. 

The organization biannually grades nearly 3,000 acute-care hospitals against 22 national patient safety measures from CMS, the Leapfrog Hospital Survey and supplemental data. 

On May 1, the organization said it recorded "significant signs of improvement since the fall 2023 Safety Grades, and preventable health care-associated infections show a sustained drop after unprecedented rates during the height of the pandemic."

Three hospitals have lost their "A" grade streak since fall 2023: Beverly (Mass.) Hospital, University of Michigan Health (Ann Arbor) and St. David's Medical Center (Austin, Texas). 

Here are the 15 hospitals with 25 consecutive "A" grades:


Mayo Clinic Hospital (Phoenix) 


French Hospital Medical Center (San Luis Obispo) 

Kaiser Permanente Orange County-Anaheim Medical Center 


Rose Medical Center (Denver) 


AdventHealth Daytona Beach


Elmhurst Memorial Hospital 

University of Chicago Medical Center

Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital (Winfield) 


Saint Anne's Hospital (Fall River) 


Baptist Memorial Hospital Golden Triangle (Columbus)

Rex Hospital (Raleigh) 


Inova Loudoun Hospital (Leesburg)

The organization also gave 815 other hospitals an "A" rating. View Leapfrog's spring list of "F" hospitals here.
