Health Care Choices Matter

June 3, 2024

When you get ready to buy a car, where do you start? You do your research and compare benefits while also considering the best choice for your needs. Do you do the same when choosing where you receive health care? Not all health care facilities are alike. Leapfrog collects and reports data from hospitals and surgery centers. Find out how to make the best choice for you and your family.

Making the Choice on Quality

The Leapfrog Hospital Survey and Leapfrog Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) Survey are the gold standard for comparing hospitals and surgery centers on standards of safety, quality and efficiency. Every year, Leapfrog collects and reports health care facility performance, empowering purchasers to find the highest-value care and giving consumers the lifesaving information they need to make informed decisions.

Data on over 2,500 facilities is available on Leapfrog's ratings website. Using the Survey results you can find the best facility for you and your family.

Making the Choice on Safety

We created the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade so you can see how well your hospital protects its patients from errors, accidents, injuries and infections. Using the simple letter grade system, you can find out:

  • How well does my hospital prevent infections and encourage handwashing?
  • Does my hospital value patient safety by supporting strong health care teams?
  • Are there policies in place for preventing errors?

Nearly 3,000 hospitals are issued a Safety Grade twice per year.

Without Transparency, How Do You Choose?

Imagine if you didn’t have access to this information. Until recently, people lacked the tools they needed to make these important decisions. We believe that patients and purchasers have a right to transparent information on hospital and surgery center care—good and bad. If your hospital or ASC does not report to the Leapfrog Surveys, ask them why not
