Where are the 27 Leapfrog straight-'A' hospitals?

The Leapfrog Group released its spring 2021 Hospital Safety Grades April 29, assigning "A" through "F" letter grades to more than 2,700 general acute-care hospitals in the U.S. for patient safety performance.

Leapfrog has assigned letter grades to hospitals based on their ability to protect patients from preventable errors, accidents, injuries and infections since spring 2012. Twenty-seven hospitals have achieved 19 consecutive "A" grades, the highest possible grade, since the launch.  

The data for this safety grades update are from immediately before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Leapfrog said. Still, the organization said some measures used in this spring's update can be a proxy for the safety of care provided to coronavirus patients.

Here are the 27 hospitals that have achieved 19 consecutive "A" grades.
