About The Leapfrog Group
The Hospital Safety Score was created and is administered by The Leapfrog Group, a national leader and advocate in hospital transparency.
The Leapfrog Group is an independent, national not-for-profit organization founded more than a decade ago by the nation’s leading employers and private health care experts. We strive to make giant “leaps” forward in the safety, quality and affordability of health care in the U.S. by promoting transparency through our data collection and public reporting initiatives.
With our goal of saving lives by reducing errors, injuries, accidents, and infections, The Leapfrog Group focuses on measuring and publicly reporting hospital performance through the annual Leapfrog Hospital Survey. The survey is a trusted, transparent and evidence-based national tool in which more than 1,500 hospitals voluntarily participate free of charge.
The Leapfrog Group advocates for public access to quality and safety data from all U.S. hospitals, and we welcome you to contact your legislators to demand more information to keep your families safe.
