The Leapfrog Group released its spring 2020 Hospital Safety Grades April 30, assigning "A" through "F" letter grades to more than 2,600 acute care hospitals for patient safety performance.

Leapfrog has assigned letter grades to hospitals based on their patient safety performance twice annually since spring 2012. This spring, 74 percent of hospitals maintained the same grade they earned in the fall 2019 update, and 47 hospitals changed two or more letter grades. 

These 32 hospitals have maintained the highest possible grade 17 consecutive times, including the most recent update.
