Find the right one for you.
Now that you’ve found a safe hospital or surgery center, it’s also important to think about what type of care you might need. Are you getting ready to have a baby? Do you need to find a hospital or surgery center for surgery?
The information we collect from hospitals and surgery centers can help you make the right choice.
Even in the best hospitals, mistakes still happen, and people get hurt. But patients and their loved ones can play an important role in ensuring a safer hospital stay.
Working on your behalf.
For 20 years, The Leapfrog Group has collected and reported information about American health care to help people make the best choices about their care. Leapfrog asks hospitals and surgery centers to share the information people deserve to know, including their performance on maternity care, nursing, and steps they follow to keep patients safe.
Over 2,000 hospitals provide this critical information, but some decline to respond to our annual Hospital Survey. If your hospital does not report to the Leapfrog Hospital Survey, ask them why not.
