Which 3 Leapfrog straight-'A' hospitals got 3 stars from CMS?

Three of the 20 U.S. hospitals that have earned consecutive "A" safety grades from The Leapfrog Group since 2012 received three-star ratings from CMS, according to the CMS 2023 star rankings released July 26. The ratings were retrieved from the Hospital Compare website.

CMS gave five-star ratings to 11 of the Leapfrog straight-"A" hospitals and six hospitals received four-star ratings.

CMS assigns star ratings to hospitals across the country each year based on five quality categories. Leapfrog assigns grades every spring and fall.

CMS ratings were retrieved from the Hospital Compare website. CMS assigns star ratings to U.S. hospitals annually based on 46 hospital quality measures. These are divided into five quality categories: safety of care, mortality, patient experience, readmission rates and timely and effective care. Data reporting periods range from July 2018 to March 2022, depending on the measure. 

Leapfrog assigns grades every spring and fall to nearly 3,000 acute care hospitals, based on 22 patient safety measures from CMS — including accidents, healthcare-acquired infections and preventable errors. Leapfrog also collects information from hospitals that complete voluntary hospital surveys and other sources. Data reporting periods range from July 2019 to June 2022, depending on the measure.
