Where are the 22 Leapfrog straight-'A' hospitals?

The Leapfrog Group released its spring 2022 Hospital Safety Grades on May 10, assigning "A" through "F" letter grades to nearly 3,000 general acute care hospitals in the U.S. for patient safety performance.

Since 2012, Leapfrog has assigned letter grades to hospitals based on their ability to protect patients from preventable errors, accidents, injuries and infections. Grades are based on more than 30 national performance measures from CMS, the Leapfrog Hospital Survey and other supplemental data sources. 

Twenty-two hospitals have achieved 21 consecutive "A" grades since the launch.  

In the fall, 23 hospitals achieved 20 consecutive "A" grades. This year, OSF St. Mary Medical Center in Galesburg, Ill., received a "B" grade after 20 consecutive years of earning an "A."
